Whether you are a serious cyclist or a recreational rider, we invite you to join us for this ride which will help create awareness and support for St. Luke's Hospice, our patients and their families.
You will begin your ride south of Jim Thorpe at the Lehighton Trailhead, part of the D & L Trail. You’ll ride what might be the most dynamic section of the trail. There are parts when you’ll ride riverside,on the rail-trail, down the canal towpath, and even more civilized paved sections. You’ll see museums, an environmental center, Appalachian Trail crossing, and beautiful vistas of the Blue Mountain, Appalachian Trail and Lehigh Gap.

Hospice provides patients and their families with compassionate end-of-life care. The focus is on care, not cure, and on quality and value of life, not the length.
