weekend rides in Pa
Anyone have any links (Cycling club outings etc.)for weekend cycling events..maby thru the Amish country etc. for 2013.
Much as I'd like to do a week long event I already blew most of my vacation time on other cycling events so the weekend getaway is it.

This Sat 8/24/13 Suburban Cyclists Unlimited is hosting their Lake Nockamixon rides out of Doylestown, Bucks County PA. Very nice country. Something for everyone.
On October 6 ... Bicycling Magazine Fall Classic; https://www.bikereg.com/Net/19609
Several distances to choose from, in a nice area for riding.
Already signed up for the fall classic
Am hoping the weather is better this year than last.
Black Bear Century (rides of 32, 41, 47, 65, 88, 98 and 107 miles)
Saturday Oct 12
Delaware Water Gap, PA
Great listings here year round.
Also, there are some GREAT Amish country rides listed in Lancaster Clubs site here:
Found a nice one for next year.
Oil Heritage Trail from Titusville to Emlenton
Several folks I ride with did this earlier last month and said it was a great ride offering a ton of scenery and sidebar interests.
NIce part is I can use either Franklin or Oil City as a base/start point and rid north one day and south the next.
