Trikkers around the world have embraced the tradition of the Last Saturday of the Month (LSM) ride. I have set up a ride for the last Saturday in September in conjunction with the Trikke Riders of Pennsylvania:
Although this ride is south of the Lehigh Valley, I thought it best to join forces with an established riding group. The Pottstown section of the Schuykill River Trail, known as the Thun Trail, has a smoothly paved surface, which is mostly flat. There are a few small hills on the eastern part of the ride, but they are easily ridden or walked up. Our ride will start at the Montgomery County Community College parking lot, and travel west to Grosstown Road and back. This will be approximately 6 miles round trip. The trail turns to gravel just west of the Grosstown Road parking lot, so we will not be able to go any further.
I hope you will consider joining us for this fun ride in what will hopefully be some fresh autumn weather. Riders of all skill levels are welcome, as the trail is well suited towards everyone. If you are not a member of the MeetUp group, I would highly recommend joining. If you decide not to, you can also RSVP via the comment option here. I would like to know who’s coming so I make sure we don’t leave anyone behind.
My plans at the moment are to host LSM rides for the remainder of the year in the Delaware Valley area where most of the Trikke Riders of Pennsylvania live. September and October’s rides are already scheduled, and I will be announcing November’s and December’s soon. I have decided to wait until next spring to start the new Lehigh Valley group, because starting it now would not give it enough chance to grow before the winter “break”. If you’re in the Lehigh Valley, I hope you will consider joining the Trikke Riders of Pennsylvania in the meantime.
