Don Daniels was a great friend and longtime member of the SBC, who led many rides including the weekend Vpark A/B rides. Don passed away one year ago. Anyone who knows Don is quite familiar with him adding a surprise mileage loop on his ride. So, Derek has added a Mileage Loop, of which Don would surely approve.
The official start is at the IDOT trailhead at 8:30 AM. A Don Daniels Mileage Loop will start from Vpark at 8 AM, riding to the official start at IDOT, where some memories of Don will be shared before and during as we roll during this leisurely-paced ride.
The ride will go to one of Don’s favorite locations – east to the Bolivia Bridge. This is an old closed iron and wooden planed bridge, located in the middle of nowhere. Walking access only!
The mileage from IDOT and back to IDOT is 40 miles with a convenience stop in Mechanicsburg.
The full Don Daniels Mileage Loop Ride from Vpark will separate from the IDOT group at the return through Rochester to go around the lake and continue to Toronto Road to Vpark. Total mileage is 61 miles.
