Green Grove to Allison Rd Ride
This week we are riding towards Spring Mills via Green Grove Road. This route will take us along Rt 45 for just a few hundred yards, please be careful and communicate with each other.
Creekside will once again have beer for purchase after the ride. You can pre-order from a limited menu near registration before we leave, or head inside the Elk Creek Cafe following the ride. There is not any music scheduled for Thursday night. Keep in mind the kitchen closes at 8:00.
When leaving Millheim, it’s very important for everyone’s safety to STAY IN YOUR LANE when cresting the first hill on Long Lane.
The bridge is out directly beyond the light where we usually go straight. Go around by turning LEFT at the light onto 45, RIGHT onto Maple and Race St, and LEFT onto Elk. Follow the arrows from there to continue onto the route.
Tips for a Safe Ride
1 – Stay in your lane on the hills of Long Lane. We know it gets tough but cars do not always slow down there.
2 – Be careful on 45. Stop at the stop sign and stay in the berm, single file.
3 – Be aware crossing 45 into Spring Mills.
There is a chance that Mark will not be providing support this week and you’ll have to put up with me out on the route. My phone number if needed during the ride is 814-360-0243.
See you Thursday!
UPDATE TO ROUTE!
Before I show you the route this week I want to take a minute to share something with the club. I get scared at the start of every weekly PV Pedals + Pints club ride. Yes, scared because I fear someone is going to get hurt…or worse.
This week we are riding one of our favorite routes, but for a different reason. Thursday we are “Pedaling for a Purpose” – with the purpose being the Dan Stearns Foundation. Please read the article to learn about how much more there was to Dan than just one of our weekly riders.
We’re riding to Madisonburg this week in Brush Valley. The route is rightfully named, the Brush Valley Reverse. This route takes us through the Millheim Narrows. I’ll once again try and arrange with Ed from the Millheim Fire Company to follow us through the Narrows for a enjoyable start to the ride. We are on our own for the return ride. Feel free to alter the route if riding in the Narrows makes you uncomfortable.
