8/3/23 – Hey George

8/3/23 – Hey George

Hi Everyone!

Were taking a ride on a portion of the George’s Valley Roads this week. It’s been a log time since we’ve ridden this route as a club. There are a few short-cuts mentioned below that will still give you a good ride!

The route will be marked with PINK arrows. This route also takes us up Long Lane to start. I’ll be at the top stopping traffic at the crest of the first hill. Make it easy on me, stay in your lane!

-See you Thursday


The Route

Full: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/40687585

Shortcut 1 (less of Upper/Lower Georges and eliminates Beaver Dam): https://ridewithgps.com/routes/36255049

Shortcut 2 (skip Upper/Lower Georges): No map but follow the “full” route to the end of Beaver Dam and turn left onto Penns Creek Rd to head back to Elk Creekside.

Hey George Route


Penns Valley Triathlon is This Weekend!

Penns Valley TriathlonWant to give yourself a little challenge this Saturday without going full-blown “triathlete”? This is the perfect starter tri with lots of encouragement! The 300yd swim is only 12 lengths of the pool (and you can put your feet down! Yes, people have actually WALKED it…just saying!). So, get your sidestroke on and dust off the joggers (we know your bike is ready!) and show up on Saturday for a fun morning!

After, we suggest heading over to the Meandering Mallard for breakfast if Elk Creek isn’t yet open for a pint to celebrate!
