8th Annual Ride for Trails
September 23 @ 8:00 am – 1:00 pm
This bike ride will take place on Saturday morning, September 23, 2023, beginning and ending at the Gettysburg Area Recreation Park. Three different routes are being offered to accommodate riders of all experience levels. All rides will travel through the Gettysburg National Military Park and over the picturesque Sachs Covered Bridge. The longer rides will also wind their way through the quiet roads of southern Adams County. To make this event complete, a lunch is provided after the rides.
Preregistration is available online until noon on Sept 22 and costs $40. Ride-day registration is also available at a cost of $45 and opens at 8:00 a.m. A BBQ lunch is provided starting at 11 a.m. A t-shirt is included in the price of registration for those registering by Aug 30.
Note that this is a “rain or shine” event. Due to the requirements for permits, facility reservations, etc., we are not able to offer a rain date.
Proceeds will be used to design, develop, and maintain trails and bike routes in Adams County. HABPI is currently pursuing several trail projects including the next section of a bicycling path in Gettysburg called the Gettysburg Inner Loop as well as a multi-use rail-trail from Littlestown, PA south to Taneytown, MD and a bike/walking path to the new Historical Society Building in Gettysburg.
