Re: Bucks County Covered Bridges Bike Ride Sunday October 15

So far we've got five people signed up for this ride. I ambitiously signed up for the 63 miler, but the other four have signed up for the 50 miler, so I may end up doing that if no one else wants to join me for 63.

If you're signing up, please post here and/or email me to let me know. I'll make sure all of us and all of our bikes get up there in time for the various rides.

Here's the schedule:


Check-in begins at 7:30 a.m. Please do NOT check in before then, and please wait until the times below to start your ride. Ride services like food stops, SAG support, and safety services will begin as follows:

8:00 a.m. – 63-mile route
8:30 a.m. – 50-mile route
9:00 a.m. – 33-mile route
9:30 a.m. – 30 mile route
9:30 a.m. – 20-mile route

Lunch is served at the end, in lovely Tinicum Park, from 11:30 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. All services end at 3:00; please plan your return accordingly.

*** It's about 1h15 to get up there and we should be there about 30 minutes before the ride departure so we can check in and get our bikes off the car and ready to go, so for the 50 miler, figure a 6:45am departure from the Philly area.
