We’re exploring new territory and rides for this year’s WWO Memorial Day Weekend bike trip — historic Gettysburg, PA and the surrounding countryside. In addition to immersing ourselves in history and great bicycling, we’ll enjoy good food at local restaurants and likely stop at least once for ice cream (maybe even once per day!).
Saturday: Gettysburg Battlefield Tour, 25 miles. We’ll ride at a comfortable pace, generally following the recommended driving route which has lots of historic information and sites to see. Sunday: Orchard Tour, 37 miles, 1800 ft. elevation. We’ll head north and west of Gettysburg, cycling through farmland, orchards and quaint towns stopping for lunch along the way. Monday: More Great Cycling and Scenery — about 35 miles either heading south or west of Gettysburg.
We have a small block of rooms under Washington Women Outdoors for Saturday and Sunday nights at the Days Inn Gettysburg, 865 York Road. Rooms with two queen beds are $139.00/night
plus taxes. You will need to call to by May 15 to reserve a room in your name. Call (717) 334-0030.
