2 Day Bills Old Bike Barn Motorcycle Tour in Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania

Pennsylvania, USA

Vintage Motorcycle Tour USA

This is a two-day jaunt designed to give you a healthy dose of vintage touring the way it was meant to be. This trip will take you through the forests and mountains of Pennsylvania’s core region and just might alter your priorities in life. Here, coal was once king and because there has been little economic development in recent years, there is still very little traffic to contend with as you enjoy the natural splendor of the Pocono and Endless Mountains. During this tour, you will ride for 300 miles in two days at a slightly sporty pace.

Program

Program

Plan to arrive in Kennett Square sometime Friday afternoon or night for orientation and loading if you’re from out of town. You can spend the night here if you like. Locals can arrive early Saturday morning. Choose your bike, and you’ll set out after an early breakfast, heading north on back roads through scenic, wooded, French Creek and through an ancient covered bridge before crossing the Eastern Continental Divide where it meets the Appalachian Trail. After lunch, a short ride takes you into Lansford, where you’ll stop at Coal Mine #9 for a subterranean tour, descending nearly a mile into one of the country’s oldest coal mines to learn how real men earned a living back when coal was a way of life.

The next section of road is twisty and challenging and it features abrupt elevation changes that make this 25-mile segment feels like a long roller coaster, joining tiny villages and farms that dot the landscape. You pop out of the woods at Route 11 which you follow for just a few miles to your luxury cabin. Dinner is at a biker friendly steakhouse, a well-deserved chow down before returning to your cabin for serious campfire discussions about the meaning of life and riding.

On Sunday morning after a mountain-man-breakfast, you’ll ride a 25-mile loop featuring two interesting covered bridges before spending an hour or two at Bill's Old Bike Barn where you get an amazing experience every time and there is always something new. You will not want to leave but the open road beckons so you head south through Shamokin to meandering Route 125, a favorite with local bikers, crossing over several mountains before bottoming out in Amish farm country where you may share the road with families returning home from their Sabbath in the horse-drawn buggies. The final leg of your journey is relaxed and includes an ice cream stop on the way home where a cold beer and a hot meal await you. Tomorrow, it’s back to work but no one is in hurry.
