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.

To make your reservations at this rate, you will need to use this booking link: https://www.choicehotels.com/reservations/groups/HT70C8

NOTE this is a busy time of the year with many fall festivals in the Gettysburg area and reservations must be cancelled by September 19 to avoid charges.

Again, if you want to attend this weekend, please sign up on Meetup and make your reservations so that we can understand the interest level before we proceed with more planning work.

Gettysburg is about 2-hour drive from Trexlertown, so driving down to make one of the rides and returning back to the Lehigh Valley in the same day may be an option for some.
