P.V. Pedals Ride, Thursday 6/3/2021
How do we follow up after last week’s weather and a new record of 84 riders? I guess we just do it again this Thursday!
Keep letting your friends who have yet to join us know that we accept all types of bikes and all types of riders.
The weather for Thursday looks a little rainy. Take a good look at the map, just in case I can’t mark the route. I rode this loop on Monday, a little hilly but overall a nice 18.6 mile ride.

- Lots of groundhogs on the Long Lane descents, be careful.
- And as usual, when riding, stay in your lane on turns and especially at the crest of the hill on Long Lane.
For any new members, we don’t cancel for rain. With riders coming from so many different areas and the weather being spotty, we make the decision Thursday evening at 6:00pm.
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.
