Hey all you skiers who want to keep active and in shape during what we call "The Off Season".
Join MLSC Members and Tirolers for a Saturday bike ride along the Schuylkill. We'll ride along a mostly flat 5 mile stretch along the Perkiomen Creek and Schuylkill into Phoenixville, where we will stop at Vecchia, our favorite thin crust woodfired pizza spot in Phoenixville. Then we’ll return to the Lower Perkiomen Park by the same route.
There is one section of this trail that has crushed gravel on packed earth, but to avoid that riders with road bikes that have skinny tires can ride on a little used road.
The ride leaves from the Lower Perkiomen Park at 11:00 am. Note that the park is off the 422 exit from Egypt Road.
To get into the Lower Perkiomen Park turn off of Egypt Road, on the east side of the Creek, onto New Mill Road. Stay on New Mill road for about .8 of a mile and turn left into the parking lot at the end of the road. Ellen & Jay will be in the parking lot slightly before 10:45. We expect the ride to start at 11:00. Tires pumped up?
(Now, some of you may want to start the ride earlier and leave on your own from the Betzwood Bridge on the Schuylkill Trail. In that case you’ll need to start from the bridge at 10:30, and you’ll have to ride back to the Bridge as well.)
