Infrastructure Tour a Success!
The first BSCPA Bicycle Infrastructure Tour was a big success. Riders came from State College, Lewisburg and various local communities to see the improvements in biking and walking infrastructure in the city and the surrounding area. Missed the tour? No problem! You can do a self-guided tour using the information below.
We are thankful to the City of Harrisburg for creating a short video to explain what bike infrastructure exists in the city and what is planned. It would be helpful for you to view this prior to the bike tour.

Link to Bike Tour route: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/35778905 This is the route for the longer version of the tour which includes a stop at Recycle Bicycle Harrisburg and additional portions of the Capital Area Greenbelt. Those riders opting for the shorter version can go as far as mile 8, Commonwealth Avenue by the Capitol fountain, and then return directly to Fort Hunter, via Walnut Street, Riverfront Park and quiet city streets.
We also received some good media coverage from Channel 21 which can be viewed here.
