EVENT CALENDAR/THE RIDES
ALL RIDES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE. We will announce when all rides will be finalized.
For those interested HUTMO will lead a ride from Pittsburgh to Gettysburg on July 14th along the Historic Lincoln Highway (Route 30).
JUly 13th and JULY 14 Thursday - Pittsburgh to Gettysburg Group
RIDE LEADER- HUTMO
I am planning on meeting any interested travelers at the Robinson Township Red Roof Inn on Thursday Morning to ride the Lincoln Highway to Gettysburg. We will stop in downtown Pittsburgh (part of the Lincoln Highway) and at the Flight 93 Memorial along the way.
Those interested can stay at a hotel in the Robinson Township area. This is a very safe area with lots of places to eat. On Wednesday Night we can go to the Quaker Steak and Lube to hang out. The Red Roof Inn - Robinson Township on Route 60 is decent and cheap. If you want nicer, there are other choices.
The evening of the 13th I will take whoever comes in on a tour around the city and we will have dinner at the World Famous Primanti Brothers. Sandwiches with cole slaw, french fries... OH so YUMMMMY. Seriously the trip is worth it just to have one of these sandwiches.
The plan is for us to leave Pittsburgh on the 14th at 8:30. That will help us avoid traffic. I will do a dry run once it warms up to check traffic in the area and will adjust the time accordingly.
From Robinson Township we will travel the Lincoln Highway to downtown Pittsburgh and and continue Eastward.
JULY 14 Thursday - Early Gettysburg Arrivals
If some early arrivals in Gettysburg want to assemble in Gettysburg for a ride or battle field tours they are free to do do so.
July 14th Thursday - EVENING

RIDE PLANNER - Battlefield Harley
Up early to York PA for Harley Plant tour. After tour we have plenty of time for a day of riding. The factory does not build bikes on Friday but they are open for tours. Groups over ten need to make reservations. The tours start at 8:30 so we could have the kick stands up in Gettysburg by 7:30AM.
I have set up a BBQ Dinner that will take place at Battlefield Harley Davidson after the Ride on Friday, July 15th.
Friday's ride will take us to the York plant and then on to a nice North Western loop that will take us north along the Susquehana River to Lewisburg. From there will will head west ad then southward back to Gettysburg. Some Highway, some farm lands and some mountains. The ride will take about 6 hours or so. The ride was designed by a salesman at Battlefield Harley.
After the ride we will go to Battlefield Harley Davidson around 5:30 for a BBQ catered dinner. The dealership has a very large pavilion that we have reserved for this event. Plenty of time to eat and shop!
