The suburbs that surround Philadelphia contain a number of parks worth visiting. Just 16 miles south of the city is a beautiful rural oasis called Ridley Creek State Park. Riding along the creek and through the forest, you will forget that you are anywhere near a major metropolitan area. This ride will start with a tour around the 5-mile paved multiuse trail within the park then head out for a loop of the suburban area around the park. This will be a rolling to hilly ride on the paved trail in the park and on the paved roads in the surrounding suburbs. This ride has a lot of ups and downs. There will be a few climbs of around 200 feet along with a couple of 100-foot climbs. None of these are very steep or hard, but you just should be aware that this ride will require a little hard work in some of your lower gears.
