The Route

We know most really enjoy the Riddle’s Ice Cream ride. But there’s one amongst us who is the ultimate fan. Our regular rider Al. He loves the route so much so that he alters his Thursday ride to include the ice cream shop. Remember the week we had to cancel the ice cream ride due to weather? Yeah, Al went anyway. Remember the George’s Valley route? Yeah, you should have followed Al to Riddle’s instead. So, we’re naming this weeks ride after Al. Enjoy your ice cream, buddy!

Two Riders Eating Ice Cream

This route will make you earn your ice cream, hilly on the way over, easy on the way back. Check out the shortcut/alternative route below.

I’ll be away this week, see you next Thursday. Enjoy the ride and remember money for your cone!

See you Thursday!

Easier/Alternative Routes: Stay straight on Penn’s Creek Rd. all the way to Spring Mills, or add Beaver Dam for a lesser challenge on the way there using this route:
