Join us for the Miles for Mark Event June 6th

7/6/23 – Bower Hollow to Paradise Loops

7/6/23 – Bower Hollow to Paradise Loops

Hi Everyone!

We’re hoping for a smoke free ride this week.

This weeks ride takes us down Bower Hollow Road in Haines Twp. This is a easy 18 mile route for what is predicted to be a hot Thursday. This ride includes a few miles on Rt 45 East – please make sure you ride safe, communicate with each other and bring a light if you have one.

So far this year the weekly turnout has been impressive and we want everyone to know we really appreciate the effort it takes to get to Millheim each week ready to roll by 6:00….Thank you!

Notes: Cancellations due to weather will be announced by 4pm the day of via email, social media and on the website. Also, keep in mind we always have extra water bottles and helmets at the sign in table if you forget yours.

The route will be marked with WHITE arrows this week.

See you Thursday!

Here’s the Happy Valley Ride w/ GPS route for July 6th:

Shortcut: You can choose to make this ride shorter by skipping one loop or the other (we recommend skipping the first loop – 7.5miles – by staying straight on Penn St/Coburn Rd instead of turning onto Tattletown Rd).
