RIDE Print E-mail


The SAMBA events committee is planning a group ride at rattling creek on 07/19 at 11:00am.

We’ll be meeting at the Minnich Hit Picnic Area

Depending on skill levels and the number of attendees we can break into different groups as well. We are going to have burgers and dogs afterwards. After ride "hydration" will be the responsibility of each rider.

If you're not a member come out and meet the SAMBA crew.

If you plan on attending let us know that way we can get a good head count for food.

SAMBA Summer Update - 2015 Print E-mail
Hello SAMBA,

Here is a quick summer update.


We’ve added some more workdays to trim the trails at Swatara Park. They are as follows: 

Thurday, June 18th  Thanks to all that help out!

Wednesday June 24 @ 6:15pm

Wednesday July 1 @ 6:15pm

Wednesday July 8 @ 6:15pm

Saturday July 11 @ 8:00am (if necessary) 

We will be meeting at the main trail head at the end of State Park Lane. SAMBA will supply tools, please bring water, gloves and wear long pants. If you plan on attending, message me or send an email at: click here to send a reply



SAMBA will be lending support to the Park’s Support Committee. The workdays are on the 2nd Saturday of the month from 9am till 12 noon. Keep posted closer to the workday date for more info. Thanks to all that helped out this month!




SAMBA recently spent about four thousand dollars on 4 Stihl Power scythes (pictures below), 2 Stihl chainsaws and many new hand tools to support Swatara, Camp Mack, Mt. Gretna, Rattling Creek and in the near future, the Parkway trails in Harrisburg. These tools have already been put to good use by our trail volunteers. Without your memberships and support none of this would be possible. If you have a current IMBA/SAMBA membership, thank you, if your membership may have lapsed, we ask you to please renew and support the work of SAMBA.
