Weather forecast for the Ride

Posted by charlespedaling4paws on June 17, 2013

Last week’s forecast along the route was calling for on and off rain, the latest model calls for a 30% risk of thunderstorm on Tuesday in the West Chester area and a 30% chance of shower in Jim Thorpe on Wednesday morning; the rest of the week is dry and in the mid 70s. A nice contrast with the high 90s and very humid days from last year! We roll promptly at 8:00 tomorrow Tuesday June 18, please join us at the West Chester Borough office located at 401 E Gay St for the 2013 send-off!

3 Nights to Go!

Posted by vohnjec on June 15, 2013

Just three nights to the 2013 Pedaling4Paws Ride. We have already had a very successful raffle in West Chester for the Chester County SPCA and and moving aggressively closer to the Skaneateles, NY based drawing for the Finger Lakes SPCA, so those who want tickets for that raffle had better get to one of the purchase locations this coming week!

We have numerous media appointments and many miles to ride but as always we still need support from the many P4P followers. Whether you choose to donate, to adopt, to ride or all and more, please let the shelters you help know it was Pedaling4Paws that made you do it and thank you very, very much for the support! Please leave comments on our blogs anytime you do anything related to P4P or if you like things we do. We greatly appreciate hearing and seeing that support too!!

See you on the road real soon!!

Another solid ride designed by Gary Bianchini, front loaded with robust hills in the first 44 miles and a nice descending faux plat for most of the next 26 miles taking us back home! 20 riders joined the group and there were lots of big smiles at the end! Thanks Gary and Viktor for a successful day! BTW raffle tickets are now up for sale, please ask for them! /Charles St-Maurice

P4P Training Ride 6

Posted by vohnjec on April 27, 2013

What a dream day for a 70 miles ride; temperature in the high 60s, light wind for a change, blue sky and a great group of 18 avid cyclists; needless to say that endorphins were flowing after a visit to beautiful Lancaster County and back! The group rode very well and is gelling very nicely after these excellent rides! See you all next week for #7!/Charles St-Maurice

P4P Training Ride #3

Posted by vohnjec on April 6, 2013

POST FROM CRISTY: Wow! Another GREAT training ride today! We rode to places I have never heard of! The group is getting better each week at riding together and we covered 63 miles from Chester County into Lancaster County and back again by way of Triple Fresh, represented in the pictures here. We even had to stop and wait for 2 horse and buggies to pass by! Kinda cool! Until next week, rest up and ride on friends!
