Gettysburg Bicycle Ride to Benefit Trail Development

On Saturday, October 1, Healthy Adams Bicycle/Pedestrian, Inc (HABPI) will host its 7th Annual Ride for Trails to raise money for trail development in and around Gettysburg.

Three different routes are being offered to accommodate riders of all experience levels: 12 miles, 25 miles, and 40 miles. All rides begin at the Gettysburg Rec Park, 545 Long Lane, and travel through the Gettysburg National Military Park and over picturesque Sachs Covered Bridge. The longer rides also wind through the quiet country roads to the south of Gettysburg with a rest stop halfway through to recharge. All rides end at the Rec Park, where a free lunch is offered to riders beginning at 11 a.m.

The 25 and 40 mile rides will be “show and go,” where riders can depart on their own schedule after check-in, which opens at 8 a.m. The 12-mile ride, which departs at 9:45 a.m., will be guided by HABPI members at a leisurely pace.

Pre-registration and additional details on the ride are available at https://habpi.redpodium.com/habpis-ride-for-trails-2022 . Pre-registration is just $35 and is open through noon on Sept. 30. Those who register by Sept. 5 will receive a free Ride for Trails t-shirt. Registration on the day of the event is $40.

If you are unable to ride with us, please consider making a donation to HABPI via the registration link above or by check made out to HABPI and mailed to 523 Moritz Rd., Orrtanna, PA 17353 (attn. M. Bramel).

Proceeds from the event will support HABPI’s work to develop and maintain trails for biking and walking as well as to promote safe bicycling and walking for the health, recreation, transportation, environment, and economic benefit of the community.
