7/21/22 – Brush Valley Backwards

Brush Valley Backwards

Hi Everyone,

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.

We’ll take a right out of the parking lot and head through The Narrows. Take a left on Rt 192 (Brush Valley Rd). Turn right onto Madisonburg Pike, right onto Shafferstown Rd and follow back to Rt 192. Turn left and eventually right onto Old Pike Rd. Left onto Smulton Rd. Take a left onto Town Ln back to Rt 192. Turn right and follow Rt 192 and take a right onto Back Rd. Continue on Back Rd as you turn right. Stay straight for several miles as Back Rd becomes Smulton Rd. Turn left to ride back through The Narrows to Millheim.

As of today there is a slight chance of rain so please check out the attached map in case the route arrows get washed off. If the weather changes for the worse and Creekside cancels, we cancel also. Check your email late in the day for any ride info if the weather is questionable.

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.

7/7/22 – Middle Road Ride

7/7/22 – Middle Road Ride

We’re riding towards Woodward this week. This route has several very winding rural roads, please stay in your lane on the blind turns. Middle Road is kind of rough with potholes, if you let yourself go on the long downhill, be careful at the bottom!! This 20 mile ride takes us on RT 45 for about a quarter mile and then crosses RT 45 twice in Woodward, be careful!
