"It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle."
         ~ Ernest Hemingway


We pair you with a Licensed Battlefield Guide who lead you on a tour of some of the most legendary and sacred ground in American history. All of our guides are licensed through the National Park Service, and carry over 100 years of guiding tradition with that license; a tradition that began with the veterans themselves.


Bicycling is one of the best ways to see the battlefield. On a bike, more of your senses get involved and more completely.  To really understand a battle, you need to know the terrain, the lay of the land. When you power yourself up the hills and ridges and feel gravity propel you down, you gain a real appreciation for the high ground and why the battle developed the way it did. Not only do you feel the terrain under your feet, but on a bike your view is unobstructed by car or bus roofs and the pace is slow enough to see wildlife, monuments, fields, and flowers you otherwise may have missed. You hear the call of birds or the baying of cattle, smell the freshly cut crops, and perhaps even get a taste of salt from the sweat on your face, just as the soldiers themselves did. Finally, this earth-friendly, green alternative to seeing the battlefield helps preserve the National Park and provides you with fresh air and exercise.

Trailers, tag-a-longs, and tandems available upon request! Call 717-752-7752 or email gettysbiketours@gmail.com to reserve.
