Bike Hike Weekend

posted Sep 4, 2015, 2:57 PM by Doug Gifford
We are planning a Bike Hike in the Lehigh Gap State Park near Jim Thorpe Pa. the weekend of September 19 & 20. 
The bike trail follows an old rail bed along the Lehigh River.  It is a packed gravel trail with no hills (you can trust me this time... no hills - it is a steady, almost un noticeable downhill grade) through a beautiful area.  There are two trail segments, 25 miles and 15 miles.  We plan to do the 25 mile segment, but if enough scouts and adults are interested, we will have two groups, and offer the choice of doing either 15 or 25 miles.
We plan to drive out Saturday morning and camp in the area Saturday night after the bike hike.  We'll provide more details when the campsite arrangements are finalized. 
If you are interested (scouts and adults) please contact me or Mr. Yim so we can plan out the trip

Note: Bike rentals can be arranged if necessary 
Here are some other important upcoming dates to remember:
  • Our first meeting is this Wednesday, September 9
  • The Assateague campout is the weekend of Sept 25-27 ( the weekend following the bike hike)
  • Our fall Court of Honor will be Wednesday October 14 
I'm looking forward to seeing everyone Wednesday,

Please let me know if you have an interest in the bike hike or if you have any questions
