Sunday Sundae Ride

My ride on the trail was excellent today. The weather was perfect, the trail smooth, and the amount of shade just right. There were others riding and walking, enjoying the day outside, moving.

Company at the Scoupe DeVille was inviting and offered nice conversation.

I'm excited to try the new Spokes Ice Cream Sundae, created in celebration of Sunday Sundae Rides. A warm waffle stacked with vanilla ice cream, pretzels, and topping to create a wheel and spoke -- yummy! Thank Scoupe DeVille for the creation.

The new Fuji Bicycle is on display in the ice cream parlor, waiting for entries into the drawing. Remember, all you have to do is meet WalkBikeBerks at the Brentwood trail head at 3:00 any Sunday afternoon this summer. You will be given a ticket to complete and drop into the entries bucket at Scoupe DeVille on our ride. At the end of the summer, we'll complete a drawing, and the winner will receive the Fuji Bike -- simply for riding with us!

We are excited to have you. Please join us next Sunday. The ride is about four miles each direction, and takes about 20 minutes each way. The trail is perfect for families with children, beginner riders, and everyone who loves ice cream as much as I do.

Dieters? Join us...cycle off the calories both before and after your ride...and enjoy the summer moving with us.

I'll be trying the new Ice-Cream Spoke! Will you?

For my money, Maple Springs Cafe is the Gem of the Thun Trail. Its midpoint location on the trail, coupled with something for everyone (including cyclists) on their menu, makes this a convenient and enjoyable rest stop. They have an assortment of quality deli selections, but if you would just as soon have a burger or a dog, they have several different varieties of those as well. They offer wait service at dinner time, which adds a friendly and personal touch. I for one don't mind riding my bike there from Montgomery County 2 or 3 times a year. The only thing trail users need to beware of is the restaurant is located on Route 724, not the Old Schuylkill Road, in the western end of Birdsboro.

Hidden treasure
Hidden in a small strip mall outside of Birdsboro, Maple Springs Cafe is one of the county's best kept secrets. The lunch menu includes the standard Italian Sandwiches (on Conshohocken Bakery rolls) plus unbelievable items sucha s hot roast beef sandwiches and gourmet soups du jour. But the dinner menu really soars! I love the lobster ravioli. The dinner portions are huge. The decor is still mostly cafe rather than destination restaurant and the waitstaff is inexperienced. The prices are very affordable and the food is great!

Get a Sundae on your Sunday Ride!

Please join WalkBikeBerks for a ride on Sunday, June 22, 2008 at 3PM. We will meet at the Brentwood Trailhead on the Thun Trail, at the intersection of Morgantown Road (PA Route 10) and Brentwood Drive. We will bike approximately 4 miles to Gibraltar where we will stop for ice cream at Scoupe DeVille in Gibraltar before riding back to Brentwood Trail Head.

We will be presenting our new logo officially to the public! We are excited and proud to display the work of the winning student entry in our logo contest and to present the winner with her new Fuji bicycle donated by Spokes Bike Shop. We'll also be sharing the 1st and 2nd runner up entries as well and hopefully presenting them with their new bike helmets donated by LEBO's and JB Mountain Bikes!

So come out and ride the beautiful trail with us, watch the unveiling of our new logo, and get to know us and share your ideas and passions as it relates to bicycle and pedestrian advocacy issues!
