Breakfast is available nearby at the Oregon
Dairy Restaurant, approximately 1 mile north of the start
location along SR 272. The food is good and plentiful and
there's even a breakfast buffet. The baked oatmeal is one of my
favorites. The restaurant opens at 6am which leaves ample time
for breakfast and to make you way to the start.

new twist on Lancaster County with a north-south route with a
start-finish in the middle. The Little Britain route starts just north
of Lancaster near the Landis Valley Farm Museum. The opening loop
heads north toward Berks County and the first control in Wommelsdorf,
passing through the Middle Creek Wildlife management area along the
way. Look for a variety of waterfowl as you pass, especially Snow
Geese. The route heads south, but along a different path that will
take you over the Furnace Hills, cross the outbound leg in Durlach,
and return via Clay to the start location which is also the second
control. It's an open control so you'll have your choice to get your
The southern loop heads east toward Intercourse before turning south
through numerous named wide spots in the road: Bellemont, Nickel
Mines, Nine Points. Don't blink or you'll miss them. As you might

your supplies before leaving the Landis Valley control. Little Britain
marks the southern end of the loop with a control at the Little
Britain Store. It has everything you need. The final legs head north
through Quarryville, Strasburg and Smoketown before returning you to
the finish. There are a few hills to climb along the way. But there
are some that offer glorious descents, too.
