Spring Fling Weekend May13 -15th with the Bicycle Club of Philadelphia

We are joining with over 100 members of the Bicycle Club of Philadelphia in Danville during May 13th through the 15th for a weekend of bike riding. There are members at all levels of experience and there are a number of rides of various distances being planned. The list below is not even a complete listing. Bill Seward and I may plan a ride for Friday afternoon, but most of the rides are Saturday and Sunday. Typically we drive down in the morning and meet at the Comfort Inn for the rides although some rides start at the Montour Preserve. There is always lots of food and friendly conversation about bikes!
