Ride Description
Starting out at the College Hill start/finish we start out heading north, along the Delware River. In the distance, the Appalachin mountains can be seen ... which is where we're headed via Wind Gap.  At the top of the Wind Gap pass, we cross the Appalachin Trail and descend down to Cherry Valley Road, offering spectacular views of the Appalachins as we continue along the quiet valley roads.  Eventually, we turn onto Rt191 which marks the long, challenging climb to the top of Fox Gap and again cross the AT.  We'll then head over to Portland along a very scenic route near Lake Minsi. With the Belvidere Bridge finally open, we'll head south along the Delaware River and  cross over into NJ at Riverton.  We then climb up Lommason's Glen -- it's pretty long but it offers a spectacular views of a stream that meanders along the road.  After an exhilirating descent, we then pass through Stewartsville and on towards Bloomsbury for the short, steep climb up Jug Town mountain.   The reward for that effort is in the form of a scenic descent along Sweet Hollow into Milford.  We then cross back into Pennslyvania  and head up to a quiet ridge that meanders along a stream through Tinicum County.  We head all the way down to the Carversville, stopping at the General Store controle. We then start heading back north, working our way back to College Hill through Tinicum and Saucon Valley.

The 150k generally follows the 200k but does not cross the Appalachians; instead, it heads directly to Belvidere where it rejoins the 200k route.

There are several steep, extended climbs.  A triple or 39x27 is highly recommended.
