GHT Trail Study
Oct 3 Ride for Trails
Organized Bike Rides
Conducted by HABPI
On Saturday, October 3 we will conduct our fifth "Ride for Trails". This is our annual ride to raise money for development of trails for bicycling and walking in Adams County. After much research and discussion, we have decided to proceed with a modified ride this year to ensure a safe event for everyone. And to give something back to the community during this difficult year, we've decided to make this event FREE! Donations will be accepted but aren't expected. You can click on the DONATE button on the right, mail a check to HABPI, c/o M. Bramel, 355 S. Howard Street, Gettysburg, PA 17325, or drop off a check on ride day.
We are offering 3 different routes this year. A 12-mile route around the Gettysburg Battlefield and across Sachs Bridge that will be led by members of HABPI
[see cue sheet]. Group size will be limited to 10 with multiple groups available if needed to ensure proper spacing can be followed. This ride departs at 9 a.m.
A 25-mile route that will include Sachs Bridge and the Battlefield as well as the country roads south of Gettysburg [see cue sheet]. This will be a "show & go" event which means there is no mass start. You arrive anytime after 8 a.m., pick up a cue sheet if needed, and head off whenever you're ready. The route will be marked with road arrows and a rest stop will be available about halfway.
We'll also offer a 40-ish mile route for those wanting to see a bit more of the beautiful countryside. We'll have cue sheets and Ride-with-GPS maps available but we aren't planning to mark the full route. This will be show & go as well with a rest stop available.
To maintain the safety of the event, we won't be able to offer a lunch this year. And to keep our costs down, we won't have a t-shirt. But hey, it's FREE! (but we'll gladly accept donations from anyone interested in supporting our work to develop trails in Adams County, PA.)
Please file a release
waiver form and register in advance by answering a few questions. Then, just show up on ride day and tell us your name and you'll be good to go.
