Anyone know any easy directions coming from Palmyra/Lebanon area. Did the Google and Mapquest and I don't really want to take the turnpike or 222 for a long distance. All the other options they give have so many turns I'd never be able to remember them. Last year I came down 422 and turned at Bernville Rd. Then I think I got on a highway for a short distance. It wasn't too many turns so it was fairly easy to remember. Problem is I can't find those directions anywhere.

Also has anyone ever gone on Sunday? Is it worth going on Sun? I might not be able to make Saturday, but was thinking about trying to go on Sunday.

Don't know about Sunday but 222 shouldn't be too bad if you leave early enough.
By 9AM it starts to clog up really bad.

Your answer might be a little too late.

Wow, glad I saw this event! It would seem like a good time, and only 4 and a half hours ride from my house. I suppose it's largely outdoors. Anybody know if there would be a good selection of parts for Sprint 955 ?

He might still be stuck in traffic?

Vendors are mostly for the older British bikes but it's worth going to all the same.

He answered a year after the question was asked.

I'll be going Friday morning this year and not far from you. I avoid the highways as well. I'll be heading up to Womelsdorf, then towards Blue Marsh and stay on the back roads from there. PM me if you have any interest in meeting.

Anyone heading to Oley this year? Weather looks decent so if I can get my desk in order, I'll probably be there on Friday.
