Scenic ride to Gettysburg

Postby makijo » May 3rd, 2012, 8:05 pm

We are planning a scenic ride on the 19th of May to Gettysburg for lunch at Appalachian Brewing Company. Following lunch you are free to explore beautiful historic Gettysburg. The ride will meet at the Food Lion parking lot in New Market just off exit 62 of I-70. This will be an early rise ride, as we will be meeting at 9:30 AM for a 10:00 AM start. We will need to a head count for the lunch arrangements so please indicate how many will be coming.

Big thumbs-up for Appalachian Brewing Company. Ate there last weekend. Try the Mile-high Meatloaf. You won't regret it. I'll be out of town, so no ride for me, but y'all have fun!

Probably 30-40 minutes.

I will be leading the ride. We will be meeting at the parking lot of the Food Lion just east of New Market. The address is:

Food Lion
11719 Old National Pike
New Market, MD 21774

This is the same place that we started from for the Covered Bridge Ride last year. There is a Shell Station and a McDonald's right there.

The ride should be two hours. I have done it several times and I think it will be a lot of fun. When we get to Gettysburg, we may have a chance for a photo op at the Eternal Flame Monument. Also, the restaurant is right next to (and actually shares the parking lot with) the Lee Headquarters House, which has a cool little souvenir shop and free museum.

Of course, we will be finished early enough for people to have a good visit to the battlefield. For those who are interested, there are lots of free down-loadable audio tours on iTunes, Civil War Travaler (recommended by the National Park Service web site), etc.

Hope to see you there.

Due to the large number of people in Gettysburg for Graduation Weekend, we will be having lunch at the Pike Restaurant on Baltimore Pike, a little farther out of town, between the National Cemetery and the Park Headquarters.

Great Great ride Tom thanks for the leading. The food was good and you did a great job on the weather. Some of those bike's at the Pike were very cool. One guy had machine gun style exhaust tips. :mrgreen:

We were planning on attending but had an unforeseen need arise to babysit my cousin's kid. Too bad too, I wanted to check it out!
