I get a great feeling riding for the first time in a city I had previously only known as a series of lines on Google Maps. I try plan my routes as best I can, attempting to keep to roads safe for bicyclists, but you never really can tell what you’re getting into before you get there. I’m never disappointed, and my trip today to Harrisburg, Pennsylvania was no exception.
I parked the truck at the Rutter’s off of I-83 and followed a 13.5 mile route (click here) around town, over the Susquehanna River, and by the State Capitol. I wish I had more time, Harrisburg looks like a really nice city, with a lot of parks, interesting restaurants, and the Minor League Baseball team Harrisburg Senators.
