Gettysburg Cycling Weekend - October 4 to 6

A weekend biking event for LVCC members is being planned in Gettysburg for Oct 4, 5, and 6.  Before extensive planning is done, we are looking for interest in the event.  The event has been posted on Meetup with some details and a slot of hotel rooms for club members to reserve.  Sign up on Meetup (https://www.meetup.com/lehigh-valley-cycling-club/events/302122051/) and make your hotel reservation by July 31 to get the club rate.  Once we have commitment from enough people we will modify the routes with rest stops, plan a happy hour, etc.

So far, the planned routes will include:
Friday ride – a 30-mile ride through Gettysburg Battlefield. We will explain how participants can download the NPS app and use Gettysburg National Military Park section to listen to numbered audio explanations at key battle points along the route.
Saturday rides – 2 to 3 options that include routes from 40 to 60 miles
Sunday rides - 2 options that include routes from 30 to 40 miles

Arrangements for a group rate for this weekend have been made with the Comfort Suites Near Gettysburg Battlefield Visitor Center 945 Baltimore Pike, Gettysburg, PA, 17325, US

This hotel in within walking distance of the town and the group rate is $189 per night versus $285 per night and will be available for LVCC members until July 31.

Youth Bike Summit

By now, most of you are aware of the National Youth Bike Summit that took place June 14th to 16th hosted by Community Bike Works.  Over 200 attendees came from around the country for the event and were very impressed with the cycling community in the valley.  Over 25 LVCC members came out to support the event – leading rides, taking pictures, setting up bikes, storing and moving bikes, etc.  Diana Dunn led the charge by coordinating a lot of the volunteers and activities.  Kim Shaffer, the CBW Executive Director, emphasized to me that without the LVCC, they could not have pulled this off.  Kudos to all who volunteered. 

I think all of us that volunteered agreed that it was a lot of fun and were very impressed with the young people who came.  I was particularly impressed by the young man riding next to me down Turner Street who popped a wheelie but continued to talk to me.  Overall, the kids were energetic, polite and caring.  It makes you think the world is in good hands for the future.
