    Hi, siz. . .

    Some nice evening/weekend rides out of Mechanicsburg if you're interested in sticking around after your work day. Check the Harrisburg Bike Club website - http://www.harrisburgbicycleclub.org/ - or shoot me a pm if you have questions.

    Welcome!

    I'm from the Lehigh Valley, but I was in W-B on Saturday to pick up my new custom bike from Rich Adams at Around Town Bikes. Rich and Tom run a great shop up there.

    I live in Wilkes-Barre.... And one of these days I may convince myself to splurge on one of Rich's bikes... In the interim, I'll just have to keep going in to buy the small stuff when I need it. In fact, I think I'll drop in tomorrow to get a chain.

    Minichamp31, what kind of riding do you do?

    Looks like fun. Do you know anyone else planning on riding it? I could possibly be persuaded. I live a short train ride from Philly.

    One other guy pmed me, he's got a small car but no bike rack. If we can't get one I'd definitely be fine with takin a train or just riding out there. I also have to ask some other people at the bike co-op on sunday evening, so I'll let ya know if more people want to come.

    Sounds good. I have a car and a bike rack although if we could manage without using either I'd prefer to go that route.

    any rides going on in the harrisburg area after work this week? I got my bike rented and I'm ready to ride!

    also any good areas to ride around in the downtown area? I'm at the Hilton at the intersection of Market St. & N 2nd Street. Thanks!

    The Harrisburg Bike Club scheduled evening rides begin next Monday, the 2nd - will you still be in town?

    If you're looking to just get out for a quick spin, head over to the riverfront. Starting at Front and Market, take the bike path all the way up to Division St., head south back to the Walnut St. bridge (the walking bridge), cross over to City Island, loop around the path on the island, head back over to Front St., back up to the path, head South into the Shipoke area and loop north again to Market St.

    I don't know the condition of the path down along the river - whether it's been swept or not - so you might fare better staying up on the path in riverfront park. When I lived downtown I rode this loop quite a bit - quick and dirty, about 8 miles for the whole loop. Just head out and keep looping it til the sun sets

    I coach a Spinning class at the Y (Front and North Streets) at noon a couple of days a week. If you can't get outside and want to get a workout in, stop by on a guest pass.

    Have fun; pm if you want to find a group ride next week (possibly Saturday as well).

    Unfortunately I'm leaving friday I saw all the HBC rides start next week!

    I will definitely head out on the greenway though tomorrow(still got some saddle sore that needs healin'). I'm assuming the riverfront you're talking about is the greenway I keep hearing about. Thanks again! I hope this weather persists!

    Actually, you might be hearing about the Capital Area Greenbelt - a ride you'd be better off doing on a hybrid. The loop I'm talking about is all riverfront - all the way north to the city line at Division St., south to the line in Shipoke, and over and around City Island. No way possible to get turned around in direction

    Beth, I think that is part of the Greenbelt.

    Finding a ride for you, branman1986, might be a bit of a challenge from center city. Do you have a car? I think a Clark's valley ride is a better representation of our area. And once there, there is no chance of getting lost. Beautiful scenery along the creek, but has low-volume yet hi speed traffic.

    If you could be there outside of "rush hour", I think it would be fun. The route is here

    Mapquest directions to are here.... Should be plenty of parking at the intersection of 225 and 325, as this creek is popular with trout fishermen.

    I ended up riding north up Market Street in traffic then cut west to the river and headed down the greenbelt/riverfront path, past a few bridges, then when the path ran out I took a left and went back on Market street. I did the loop a bunch of times and it was great.

    Sup everyone, Im from Dover PA.

    Im pretty new to mountain biking, have done a lot of bmx in the past at chicky's rock in lancaster and some local places. Switchin over to mountain biking and looking for some trails and stuff to start off on. Ive ridden at pinchot park just around the lake, no real fun terrain tho. nearly died there over the spring break, would have been a shame.

    Im lookin to buy my own bike, not a new one tho. I broke my brother's rim and am not allowed to ride his bike anymore.

    Beth, I know that you are a member of the Harrisburg Bike Club and I recently read an article in the Patriot-News that listed the top personal trainers in the mid state area. The top spinning instructor was a lady named Beth, also a member of the Harrisburg Bike Club, is that by any chance you? If so, congratulations.

    Not really sure of the distance between both, but if you love pizza, Torresdale Ave seems like the place to be

    Yup, that was me - it was a very nice honor from a great group of people I work with at the Y.

    Spending most of my time behind the camera or on digital retouching of images (the day job that supports my cycling habit ), I had to get pretty far out of my box to do those photos. It was fun, though, and was humbling to be considered in such a talented and diverse group of fitnes pros.

    Thanks, papedaler - perhaps we'll run into one another on the road somewhere this year!

    My suggestion would be to do both. Riding alone will make you stronger mentally and physically - no one to pull you along through tough spots; and group riding will teach you all sorts of riding tips and handling skills. Hang in the middle of the group, watch and listen. You'll pick up a lot!

    Check the websites for both the Harrisburg Bike Club and the Lancaster Bike Club; they post their ride schedules.

    http://www.harrisburgbicycleclub.org/
    http://www.lancasterbikeclub.org/

    Good luck!
