PA Environment Ride From The Susquehanna To The Schuylkill June 24-26

The Pennsylvania Environmental Council is sponsoring a unique biking event from the Susquehanna to the Schuylkill River-- the Pennsylvania Environment Ride-- June 24-26.
The Pennsylvania Environment Ride is an exciting new ride designed to support the Pennsylvania Environment Council’s extensive trail and greenway work. On June 24, riders will embark on an Amtrak train for Elizabethtown, PA. Upon arrival at Elizabethtown, you will begin a three-day return journey to Philadelphia.
The route will be fully supported by a volunteer crew who will mark the route, hand out refreshments and good cheer at rest stops, offer sweep services to riders who need a lift, and more. You will enjoy the Amish country of Lancaster and surrounding counties, farm vistas, covered bridges, Chester County horse country and dramatic views of the Susquehanna River.
Nearly the entire route will be on scenic country roads and bike paths, ending in downtown Philadelphia. The ride will feature the region’s great history and bounty, treating you to an unforgettable weekend.
The Pennsylvania Environment Ride supports development of the bicycle trails in southeastern Pennsylvania. This vital network of trails is used extensively for commuting, recreation and sightseeing throughout the region.
The ride is limited to 75 committed riders.
