Lehigh Valley Trikke and Trikke Riders of Pennsylvania have been partnering to host regional LSM (Last Saturday of the Month) rides this year. Because a number of regulars could not attend July’s LSM, we’ve put together a second ride this month in hopes that everyone can join us.
The first ride on 7/20/13 will be to Doylestown Central Park in Doylestown, PA. This is a beginner-friendly park for Trikke riders with several miles of trails around its perimeter and extending into nearby neighborhoods. For those seeking a more challenging ride, it also connects to the eastern end of the new Route 202 Parkway Trail. We’ll start with the park trails, and then riders who have the endurance and skill for hill climbing can continue onto the Parkway Trail.
The second ride on 7/27/13 will be held on the D&L Trail along the beautiful Lehigh River in Easton, PA. This ride will be a double-header in its own right. Beginning at Riverview Park in Palmer Township, the first segment will head west to the boat launch and back, for an easy five miles of flat carving. The second part is optional, and will head east, crossing the Lehigh River and then carving between the river and the D&L Canal. This part is not for the faint of heart, as it includes several challenging hills and sections of trail along the water’s edge.

I hope you will consider joining our growing group as summer riding season carves into high gear. 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.
