There will be one rest stop with snacks, drinks and facilities at about the half way point. A post-ride party with food is provided free to all riders. Cue sheets, ride marshals, and a SAG wagon will be provided to assist riders.

HABPI’s purpose is to promote health and public recreational opportunities and alternate transportation through safe bicycling and pedestrian activities, both on road and off. Activities include acquiring, developing and maintaining trails and routes. We are currently working with others to help complete the Grand History Trail, a 250 mile bicycle/pedestrian trail linking many of the key historic sites in the mid-Atlantic region. Our efforts are focused on identifying and designing a route from Hanover, PA through Gettysburg, PA (to link to the battlefield) and then down to Emmitsburg, MD.

Senator Richard Alloway II was elected to his first term in the Pennsylvania Senate in November 2008. After winning re-election in 2012, he is currently serving his second term representing the 33rd District, which includes all of Adams County and portions of Cumberland, Franklin and York Counties.

Light, lights, lights!! New lights from Bontrager have just showed up. We have the new insanely tiny Flare R City, Ion 350 R and our best selling rear light, the Flare R. Make every ride safer with the first tail light designed for daylight visibility. Flare R’s balanced optics set off with a powerful CREE LED can be seen from over 2km day or night. 65 Lumens and 270 degrees of visibility help make you the biggest distraction on the road.

In case you missed the first generation of eBikes, let’s back up a sec. The Townie® Go! is a battery-powered, pedal-assist bike that lets you ride like the wind without breaking a sweat. The difference this year? We’ve upgraded to a Bosch frame-mount mid-motor that’s quieter and lets you adjust your cadence based on speed. Those are some fancy words, but the gist is that it handles better with a lower center of gravity, a smoother ride and a wider range of power support.

What has remained the same is that the Townie Go! is an absolute blast to ride. The balloon tires glide over any surface with unlimited traction. Multi-gear functionality lets you control output and battery life. And of course, it looks as awesome as it rides. The combination of Townie’s Flat Foot Technology® with Bosch’s legendary performance is a match made in heaven. Or San Diego, which is pretty close.

New Lineup of Daylight Visible Lights

Flare R changed the world’s idea of what a tail light could be, and helped increase the visibility of its users in the process, day or night. Building on the momentum of our ground-breaking, award-winning Flare R daylight visible tail light, Bontrager has developed an entirely new lineup of compact lights, designed specifically for daytime use. Flare R City is a more compact version of Flare R with a wider beam pattern and ambient light sensor that automatically selects the correct intensity for current riding conditions when set to auto-brightness mode. Designed for use in the city, where intersections present unique challenges, the 120-degree beam path provides a swath of light that is powerful enough to be seen 400 m or ¼-mile away in daylight conditions.
flareThe companion front light to Flare R City, Ion 100 R packs a ton of lumens into a compact package that still provides the requirements of a daytime running light. It features an interruptive flash pattern with brighter flash, focused beam pattern, and range that makes it visible from 500 m away in daylight conditions. flare1Sleek, light, and simple, Ion 350 R is less than half the weight of the competition. Also available with Transmitr wireless capability, (Ion 350 RT), both Ion 350 lights feature daylight visibility from 1000 m in daylight conditions. flare2Building on the success of Ion 700, the all-new Ion 800 features an increased lumen output, daytime flash pattern, and an off-road configuration mode that provides an easy transition from high to medium beam. Visible from 2 km away in daylight conditions, this light is the natural evolution of our benchmark headlight, for a price no one can ignore. flare3
