Organized Bike Rides
Conducted by HABPI
Healthy Adams Bicycle/Pedestrian, Inc. (HABPI) is planning to conduct several bicycle rides in 2016, both on road and off road, slow and fast paced.
If you plan to participate in a ride, please send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org. If no one tells us they plan to join the ride, it could be canceled.
Riders also need to complete a "Release Form" prior to their first ride. You can print, complete and bring this with you or complete it at the ride start.

On Saturday, September 10 we will ride on scenic country roads in and around Littlestown. The ride will start at 10:30 a.m. in the parking lot of the Littlestown High School at 200 East Myrtel Road. Several riders plan to have lunch at a nearby restaurant.
On Sunday, September 18 we are organizing a kids' bicycle parade and ride at the Gettysburg Recreation Park as part of the Heritage Festival. Children are asked to ride or bring their bikes to the Recreation Park and meet behind the stage at 12:30 p.m. to decorate their bikes. Free decorating materials will be available for anyone who needs them. Following the first act and some comments by a local official, the children will ride their bicycles past the stage and onto the Biser Fitness Trail for a short ride. Anyone coming to the Heritage Festival who wears or shows a bicycle helmet will receive free apple juice drinks compliments of Knouse Foods. At the "HABPI" table people bringing bikes can register to win a free bike tune-up provided by Gettysburg Bike and Fitness. See photos of previous rides.
On Saturday, September 24 we will meet at 7:30 AM in the parking lot of Friendly's restaurant at 445 Steinwehr Avenue for a ride around Gettysburg. We will do a fast ride (15 mph) covering approximately 20 miles and a slower ride (9-11 mph) of about 10 miles using different routes. This is intended as a breakfast ride so riders are encouraged to have breakfast at Friendly's after the ride and all riders should be finishing about the same time.
On Saturday, October 1 rainy and stormy weather is predicted so for safety reasons the ride on the York County Rail Trail is cancelled and will not be rescheduled this year.
On Saturday, October 8 our first "Ride with Rich" (Senator Alloway) will take place, rain or not. We regret that after several nice days, rain is forecast but there is no good date to reschedule and redo preparations. The post-ride lunch of pulled-pork barbecue is available to all registrants, whether they ride or not, starting at 11 a.m. under a Rec Park pavilion. We will have cue sheets for an alternate, 12-mile route circling Gettysburg. Riders could do this twice, weather permitting or start an hour later and do it once. Riders doing the shorter route could make a quick dash back to the start if rain gets heavy. Please park in front of the Charlie Sterner Building at 545 Long Lane (Gettysburg Rec Park). Registration will be in a pavilion to the right of the building.
This ride will raise money for trail development in Adams County, especially the Grand History Trail. The 25-mile ride will take bicyclists south of Gettysburg with a half-way rest stop at "The Links" golf course. Snacks and beverages will be provided at the rest stop and sandwiches, snacks, and beverages will be provided at the end of the ride. Food and beverages are being donated and a registration fee of $25 will be used to support trail development. Cue sheets, ride marshals, and a SAG wagon will be provided to assist riders. A beautiful riding jersey will be given to the lucky rider whose name is drawn. A HABPI T-shirt will be given to the second name drawn. The long ride will leave at 9 am. Please register online. Here is a map and cue sheet for the ride. We also have an alternate cue sheet that works better with cell phones.

The ride for Saturday, October 15 has been cancelled. No one has indicated an interest in the ride and our ride leaders have a schedule conflict.
