What we're about
This is a group for anyone who has the desire to explore the many "rails to trails" bike paths and/or other more leisurely bike routes (weekdays, weeknights, and weekends) with a nice group of friends within a reasonable driving distance of the Southern Chester County/Wilmington/Philadelphia base area. Bike pace might vary according to terrain, but basically a nice leisurely safe pace where we can get some great photos or just picnic for a while. Some of these rides include the Schuylkill River Trail (Philadelphia), Perkiomen Trail (Oaks), New Hope area trails, Heritage Rail Trail (York), Struble Trail ( Downingtown ). All members will be able to suggest rides they wish to do by using the suggestion area on the group site. We will also do trips to central and western PA which have many incredible rails to trails rides as well. There will also be weekend bike riding adventures. Some of these include the C&O Canal, Pine Creek Rail Trail (Wellsboro ), and Greenbrier River Trail ( WV ). These will involve bike camping and/or car camping. We will also meet on occasion to plan events and give members a chance to suggest rides they would like to do. Looking forward to meeting other people who are also outdoor biking enthusiasts.
Upcoming events (4+)
Join your friends from both clubs as we ride Lewes, Henlopen, Rehoboth....This will be a ride of four different trails. We will start by going through the Cape Henlopen State Park. The next trail is the Gordon’s Pond Trail. After that we will be on the road for a little bit to hookup with the Junction and Breakwater Trail which goes to the Lewes - Georgetown trail. Trails will be a mixed bag of gravel and black top so hybrid recommended.
Helmets are required. Please don't embarrass the leader having to beg someone to wear a helmet. Also have a tube so someone can fix a flat.
Please bring a rear light for a small section on the road.
Ice cream in Rehoboth and those who wish, we will fid a place to eat after the ride.

The Pine Creek Trail is one of the nicest in the state of PA. It runs 60 miles from Wellesboro pa to Jersey Shore pa. I have reserved the Cedar Run Inn for the weekend. The Inn is in the middle of the whole trail. I am thinking 🤔 of getting a shuttle to the top and biking 🚴🏾♀️ back to the Inn one day and doing an out and back the second day. There are 13 rooms at the inn some with 2 beds. There is also camping nearby. This year I have reserved the inn for the weekend. I would like to fill every bed at at the inn so before you sign up please get in touch with anyone you would like to bunk with and call me at[masked] after 6. This year you do not have to call Charlotte at the inn I will setup all the rooms. This year everyone will have an early dinner 🥘 time of 5:30.
