Let's Ride the Tour de Scranton

I have heard about this after the fact for a few years, and I would like to ride it this year. How about you?

Pace: Slow

Distance: Options for 4 (closed course) 15, 32, 46 or 64 miles

Terrain: Flat on shortest route with increasing climbs on longer routes.

Traffic: None on shortest route. Other routes are road cycling.

This is a fund raising event, and all participants need to comply with the rules and guidelines created by the ride organizers.

I will personally be targeting the 32 mile ride for this event.

The details for this year's ride should be updated soon on their web site at: http://www.tourdescranton.com/

The fee should be paid directly to the ride organizers, and if it remains the same should be $25 per student, $30 per adult, if paid in advance. You are also urged to raise funds for the charitable organization.

I will update this posting as the date draws near.

Registration is at 9:00 and the ride starts at 10:00.


The address and map seem wrong, but I selected it from a drop down list.  I will correct it before the event.

    I rode the Tour de Scranton, and did the 32 mile route from Scranton to Carbondale and back. It was a stretch, since my longest ride this year was 17 miles... And, I did fine up until the 20 mile point when I fell pretty hard... I looked behind me to see if it was safe to move over and turn left, then when I looked forward and started turning, my front wheel got caught in a 2" wide trench, and down I went. I managed to get up and finish the ride. :)

    I scraped my left elbow pretty good, and could tell I had a scrape on my left leg... but it wasn't until after the ride that I noticed I had a blood blister on my right thumb... and in the shower last night I noticed I had scraped and bruised my right forearm, and my neck and shoulders are a little sore. But, it was still a nice ride.

    It reminded me of the saying, for a cyclist the question is not, "will I fall?" it is "When will I fall?"

    Sounds like fun and I would love to join you, but I am hosting an Adopt-A-Highway event at the same time.
