This route take us up Long Lane. We’d like to remind everyone of a few key safety tips…

  1. PLEASE, stay in your lane, especially along Long Lane.
  2. Single file when cars are passing. And make room for passing riders.
  3. Be aware of others – look before you pass for other riders and cars.

“Immel Road” Route Details

RSVP + Download the Route:

This ride has beautiful rises and valleys a plenty. We’ll start up Long Lane (PLEASE stay to the right/in your lane), then down Long Lane to Penns Creek Road. Up Paradise to Orndorff and Immel, then back via Beaver Dam (if your legs have had it, you can detour around Beaver Dam via Penns Creek Rd.) We’ll then roll back into Millheim on Penns Creek Rd.

NEED A SHORT-CUT? Instead of turning right onto Paradise, stay straight on Penns Creek Road. Follow it around to Beaver Dam Road where you can rejoin the route. This cuts out Paradise, Orndorff and Immel.

For those that have not ridden with us, these rides are at your own pace. We mark the course, but it’s smart to download the route through the Happy Valley Ride with GPS link provided in case rain washes our markings away. Call Roy/the Support Truck number if you are lost or can’t finish your ride for ANY reason. 814-360-0243
