This past Saturday, the 7th of April, we kicked off our first breakfast and ride of 2012. This ride took us on a tour of south central Pennsylvania and traversed several counties. We had riders show up from Lancaster, Hamburg, Philadelphia, Allentown, Bethlehem, Scranton, Reading, and points in between. All in all we had around 25 riders join us, with about 28 or so attending breakfast.
The ride went well and despite a chilly start in the morning the weather turned out to be perfect. The ride ended up being 300+ miles long for just about everyone who attended. We began in Allentown, stopped for lunch in Mt. Gretna in which we shared some fellowship and caught up with everyone. After lunch we continued on, through some farmland and winded our way through the mountains to reach our final stop in Spring Run, PA. We saw lots of wildlife, including a camel, had a member of our group jump start a Harley, and got to ride some of the twistiest roads Pennsylvania has to offer. It was great seeing old faces, as well as some new ones! What a way to kick off the season!Our next event is the Bike Blessing on April 21, followed by the Blue Mountain Run on May 5. We hope to see you there! You don't want to miss it!
