PA Dutch country: bike rental

by Mr_Furious

Hi, I'm leaving for the US in 10 days (mostly around NYC) and since it would be a shame to miss the us countryside I thought maybe the area around Lancaster (PA) would be nice to see the countryside, some of those wooden covered bridges and perhaps some Amish (although I'm not expecting too much of that).
My LP book and various websites on the area say that it's a really nice area to go cycling and the pictures I saw on the net only seem to confirm this, but the problem is that I couldn't find any adress (LP or net) in Lancaster or the area around Lancaster where I can rent a bicycle for a couple of days. Who can help me finding a place like that? It would be a shame being stuck on buses and so on because it looks soo great for cycling.

Thank you,
Bert Dosfel

ps: prices on campgrounds seem rather high to me, around 20 US. Is it cheaper for a lonely traveller in a small, sad-looking tent?

Re: PA Dutch country: bike rental

These guys are in Lancaster and say they rent bikes: http://www.bikeline.com/locations/stores/lancaster.html

You can also call any of the shops in Lancaster or Ephrata (which is also in Lancaster County, area code 717) in the list on the page http://users.adelphia.net/~lshean/bikeshop.html

I'm not sure how many covered bridges are in the area but you will have no trouble at all spotting the Amish. They are a very significant part of the population of the whole area. I was just up there two weeks ago (Lancaster is around 45 minutes from where I live) and had a fantastic time at an Amish charity auction. It's a really different world, very interesting. Being on a bike will be a lot of fun--get a detailed map and go on all the back roads. The countryside is very pretty.

I think $20 for a tent camping space is probably around average. State parks will be cheaper: http://www.dcnr.state.pa.us/stateparks/parks/herreg.aspx

Hi Bert,
I'm wondering if you mean MOTORCYCLING or bicycling? After looking at your home page, I think motorcycles.

You wouldn't want to miss the Harley Davidson factory/museum in Pennsylvania if you have time in Pennsylvania. If you look under my Pennsylvania travel pages, you will find all of the information on that.

It is about a 3 hour drive from New York City to Lancaster, PA. A favorite place for people to visit in Lancaster is a broadway-type of presenation. Look at the Sight and Sound theater's website at www.bibleonstage.com.

There are personalized tours available of the Amish country. There is also a special map of a covered bridge tour - we picked it up at a travel information place there and enjoyed the tour around the area.

And, for some good Pennsylvania Dutch cooking, most tourists stop at the Shady Maple Restaurant. www.shady-maple.com. It is an all-you-can-eat buffet. Great for a hungry man.

Travel Tips for Lancaster

Amish and Mennonite Traditional Clothing

by ringleader

Traditional Amish and Mennonite families are usually large (although not always) and are easy to spot by their dress, by the clothes on their clotheslines, by the way they travel, and by (believe it or not) the window shades in their homes.

The traditional dress is easy to distinguish: Amish women wear brightly-colored under-dresses covered by a black apron and black bonnets or white, mesh caps. Amish men wear black pants and vests, usually have beards, and hats - either straw (summer) or black (winter). The Mennonite women wear a particular style of dress with a type of "bib" covering to the waist and is usually made of a cotton print or gingham and a smaller, white, mesh covering. I have seen a young Mennonite girl, however, wearing a dress in traditional style made of pink satin. It was an unusual sight. As you travel through the Lancaster countryside, be looking for their LONG clotheslines. You will begin to see what types of clothes they wear, if not their entire wardrobes!

Philadelphia - Independence Hall

by keeweechic

Independence Hall was Pennsylvania's State House and was built in 1732. It took an amazing 21 years to complete. Within these walls, the Declaration of Independence was debated, drafted and finally signed. That famous document is now the oldest federal constitution in existence. See also the Liberty Bell and the Betsy Ross House.

The Pro Cycling Tour Begins Here

by NitnyLeo

The first Tuesday in June, brings the world of professional cycling to the streets of Lancaster. This first stop of the First Union Cycling Series (and the beginning of the Pro Cycling Tour) attracts international competition. While the USPS always has a team entered, it never includes Lance Armstrong...it seems he's always training in Europe for some race in France.

The Amish Experience - Amish Village

by Mikebb

Included in our tour was a visit to the Amish Village which is run on the lines of a theme park. You are ushered into a multi media theatre where you watch a 20 minute video on the Amish people which gives you an insight to their community and beliefs.

We also attended an Amish banquet, details are on my Restaurant tips.

All in all it was a good experience and I came away with more understanding of this community.

Mt. Gretna Lake and Beach

by Knight_Kadosh

A nice family oriented Lake with a beach (an imported sand shoreline). Lifeguards on duty and a roped in area for none swimmers. Nice remote forested area to escape the heat or hustle and bustle of a busy vacation.
