On Saturday, September 23, Healthy Adams Bicycle/Pedestrian, Inc (HABPI) will host its 8th Annual Ride for Trails to raise money for trail development in Adams County.
Three different routes are being offered to accommodate riders of all experience levels: 13 miles, 24 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 will be offered to riders beginning at 11 a.m.
The 24- 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 13-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 bit.ly/RFT2023 or via the link on our website at habpi.org. Pre-registration is just $40 and is open through noon on Sept. 22. Those who register by Aug. 30 will receive a free Ride for Trails t-shirt. Registration on the day of the event is $45.
If you are unable to ride with us, please consider making a donation to HABPI via our website 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.
