Laurie Pettigrew is hosting our 2019 convention. She will organize the hotel arrangements and dinners with some help from Gary Pilling and Mary Miranda. Gary will develop rides using routes obtained from the Lancaster Bike Club website. Traditionally, the convention days are Fri-Sun but in recent years many of us start the weekend on Thursday.

A complimentary continental breakfast is included.  Most rooms have two queen beds, refrigerator, wi-fi. No bikes in the rooms, but we will have use (& control) of a locked garage for our bikes.
