Potomac Pedalers' Carlisle, PA Weekend, Aug 12-14
3 years 4 months ago #1448
The Potomac Pedalers Touring Club will be hosting their annual Carlisle, PA cycling weekend from Friday, August 12 to Sunday, August 14. (This used to be the Allenberry Resort Weekend in Boiling Springs - 5 miles down the road from Carlisle - but the Allenberry Resort was recently sold.) This is an all-inclusive package of hotel, rides, meals, parties, etc.
This year the event will be based at the Days Inn South of Carlisle, which is ~2 to 2.5 hours west of Philadelphia. It's a straight shot on the PA Turnpike. Carlisle is a very charming town - it's the county seat for Cumberland County, and the home of Dickinson College and Law School. It's has plenty of cafes, restaurants, other attractions, and a large bike shop, too!
If you've never cycled in this region of PA (Cumberland and Franklin Counties), this is a very lovely area for cycling. A wide assortment of cue sheets are available, for picturesque routes on peaceful roads. There will be scheduled group rides with leaders, also. It's also a pretty area for walking and hiking - the attractive town of Carlisle is a great place to walk, and for the hikers, the trailhead for the Appalachian Trail is nearby.
