Join approximately 1,750 bicyclists as you tour the rural countryside near Dover, Delaware, and its beautiful Amish farmland. Individuals and teams of riders can choose from five courses stretching 15, 25, 50, 62, and even 100 miles.
Be sure and take a break from the blacktop and enjoy several food stops. These will feature traditional Amish fare, as well as scenic views of the surrounding landscape. There will also be a free BBQ picnic at the finish line.
Early-bird registration costs $35 per adult and $15 for children ages 5 to 16. All proceeds will benefit cheritable causes, like the Amish School House Education Program, Central Delaware YMCA, Bike Tour Fund and more. Participants do not need to raise funds or pledges themselves.
This bike tour coincides with another event called the Pedal Away Prostate Cancer Race. These events do not conflict; in fact, riders can participate in both by registering at BikeReg.com.
Visit this website's "Great Places" section to combine this event with other outdoor destinations for a whole weekend of end-of-summer fun.
