This is a long route. Not too climby, but you will need to be prepared for many hours in the saddle. Take care of any fit issues on your bike. Sunscreen, sunglasses and ample water is a must. We will be riding up to 30 miles between breaks. Moving steadily and conservatively will get you home without issue.
The Gettysburg Campaign is a beautiful, flowing route; a delightful way to tour the battlefields on bike. We stop and regroup every 30 miles and take a respectable lunch. There are several places to eat downtown. I will be at Garryowen Pub.
If you are not interested in the full 130 up to Gettysburg, I’ve made a nice alternate 100 miler here: GettysburgSHORT … CUESHEETSHORTVERSION. This short version bypasses G’burg to the southeast. The first and last rest stops are the same as the 130.
