The opportunity for adventure is upon us! With bluebird days and mild spring time temperatures, the time is right to explore uncharted territories or that new section of pavement to the unknown.
In this article I am trying something new for the readers and the folks who just are looking for a nice road bike ride while spending time in the Jim Thorpe area. Most cyclists nowadays use a GPS unit to keep track of their ride data, and or download rides to their GPS unit when traveling into a new area where the roads are unknown.
The ride takes cyclists on a warm-up towards the Mauch Chunk Lake to a short punchy climb into the Mahoning Valley. Riders will then hit some rolling terrain through the Valley towards the grueling climb up the South side of Flagstaff Mountain.
After summiting, riders will descend back into Jim Thorpe.
Enjoy the ride and remember to keep your path bright!
