Parking Notes (IMPORTANT):
We are not allowed to park near the intersection of Beaver Rd and SR 504. This is a public parking lot, and the Park wants to keep it open for any non-bikers that want to enjoy the park that day.
We can park in two different areas. The first is the Organized Tenting Area (RED TEXT). The Penn State team used this area in the past, and we basked in the glory of a fireplace to warm our wet clothes once we finished our TTT. The second proposed parking area is the tiered parking (BLUE TEXT) right off the intersection of SR 504 and Beaver Rd. This is near the corner just at the bottom of the first descent, right before the start finish line. If parking here, be aware that this is an active intersection for the race.
