My favorite local ride, for anyone who gets to Central PA - Amish Country, Gettysburg, HersheyPark, etc. is to zig-zag over the mountains between cumberland and perry counties.
On the north, Valley Rd. parallels the range and Wertzville Rd does so on the south. Connecting them every few miles are roads that criss-cross the mountains: Tower Rd, Lamb's Gap Road, Miller's Gap Rd, Mountain Rd., Rte. 34, Waggoner's Gap Rd., etc. They're all nice 2-lane twisties. Easy cruising at 35-40, a few hairpins that you can scrape the pegs at 25 if you like, and you don't have to go over 50 to get some real thrills going.
Just "up one and down the next" is a good hour-long 'clear my head and relax' ride. Hitting more adds time: really your choice how long you want to zig-zag.
