P.V. Pedals Ride, Thursday 8/19/2021
This week’s ride is the Apple Butter Loop backwards. It’s slightly longer than the last several rides, at just over 20 miles. There are a few shortcuts on this route once you cross over Rt 45.
It was great to see even more new riders last week! For those that don’t know, helmets are required.
We’ll begin by riding straight through the light toward Coburn. Turn left onto Pine Creek Rd, left onto Quarry Rd, and cross over Rt 45 onto Apple Butter Rd (quick right-left). Turn right onto Cemetery Rd and continue straight onto Jackson Hill (passing Patchwork Farms). Follow around and take a left back onto Cemetery Rd. Cross over Rt. 45 to Pine Creek Rd. (quick left-right). At the T, take a right onto Coburn Rd back into Millheim.
With the chance of rain, take a minute to look at the map, just in case I can’t mark the route.
- Stay in your lane.
- Please be watchful as you cross Rt 45. You’ll be on 45 for less than a minute each time, but stay clear of traffic, travel single file, and communicate with other cyclists.
- Faster Riders – Please be the first to leave the parking area to reduce the need to pass.
After you cross over Rt 45:
- Turn right onto Middle Rd from Apple Butter Rd. Turn right onto Cemetery Rd to rejoin the route.
- While on Cemetery Rd, turn right to continue on Cemetery Rd (skipping Jackson Run Rd.). Turn right to continue on Cemetery Rd and rejoin the route toward Rt 45.
In an effort to start on time… we’d really appreciate it if those of you with extra time could arrive earlier so that we can get late-comers checked in more quickly.
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.
This week we are riding to Riddle’s Ice Cream Shop in Spring Mills. A little hilly on the way over to make you earn your cone! DON’T FORGET money for Ice Cream if you plan on stopping.
*FIRST – A SPECIAL THANKS! to Brush Mountain Lodge Vacation Rentals.* This week we are riding to Brush Valley through the Millheim Narrows. We will have the Millheim Fire Company follow us to avoid any vehicles passing us. Still remember to stay in your lane! We will be on our own on the return trip.
