Since we couldn’t ride this route last two weeks due to the weather, we’ll ride it this Thursday, July 15th instead.
For future reference, we’ll let you know of cancellations due to bad weather by 4pm Thursday with an email and/or posting a notice on the weekly post and homepage of the website.
P.V. Pedals Ride, Thursday 7/8/2021
We’ve had great turnouts this year! I want all of you to know how much we appreciate your efforts to be part of the rides. We realize it’s hard to finish work and hustle to Millheim by 6:00 to ride with us. Thank you for helping to make this season a great success so far!
We’ll explore more of Aaronsburg and Woodward this week with the Tattletown – Bower Hollow – Quarry Ride! P
We’ll ride through Millheim taking a left onto Tattletown into Aaronsburg, riding a short section of 45 before turning right onto Rachel’s Way. Follow the road onto Pine Creek Rd, turning left onto Bower Hollow, then right onto Rt. 45. Turn left onto Cemetery Rd, right onto Apple Butter, crossing 45 to Quarry Rd. Then enjoy the final stretch of Pine Creek turning right back into Millheim.
Please be careful along route 45. There’s a nice berm along these sections, so do your best to stay out of traffic lanes over these short distances. Other than that, enjoy the rolling hills, amish countryside and pine lined roads!
There is rain in the forecast for this Thursday, please take a look at the attached route just in case I can’t mark the route for us.
Looking forward to seeing everyone again this week!
In an effort to start on time… With every new rider needing to sign the waiver and to continue the community feel of our rides, we will not start until everyone in line has signed in. We know some of you hustle to get to the ride by 6pm, so we’d really appreciate it if those of you with extra time could arrive earlier so that we can get late-comers checked in more quickly. (And thanks to all of you that showed up early last week!)
UPDATE TO ROUTE!
Before I show you the route this week I want to take a minute to share something with the club. I get scared at the start of every weekly PV Pedals + Pints club ride. Yes, scared because I fear someone is going to get hurt…or worse.
This week we are riding one of our favorite routes, but for a different reason. Thursday we are “Pedaling for a Purpose” – with the purpose being the Dan Stearns Foundation. Please read the article to learn about how much more there was to Dan than just one of our weekly riders.
We’re riding to Madisonburg this week in Brush Valley. The route is rightfully named, the Brush Valley Reverse. This route takes us through the Millheim Narrows. I’ll once again try and arrange with Ed from the Millheim Fire Company to follow us through the Narrows for a enjoyable start to the ride. We are on our own for the return ride. Feel free to alter the route if riding in the Narrows makes you uncomfortable.
