FYI - Guided bike ride set along Lehigh Gorge

Published April 16. 2011 09:01AM

On Saturday, May 14, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., Pennsylvania State Parks naturalist Stephanie Strub will lead a 17-mile guided bike ride along the gently-sloped rail-trail that follows the Lehigh Gorge.

Riders will take in the natural sights, watch the whitewater rafters in the river below, and learn a little bit of local history at points of interest along the way.

The ride will begin at the Rockport launch area and head north to White Haven, where riders will have the opportunity to enjoy a lunch of Italian food and ice cream before turning around to ride the slight downhill back to Rockport.

The fee for this program is $5 per person payable at the event. Please note that riders must be in good physical condition and bring their own cycling gear or secure rentals.

Register in advance, as the ride will be cancelled if there is a lack of apparent interest. To register or receive more information about this event, contact Stephanie Strub at sstrub@state.pa.us or 215-453-5015.
