ARE YOU READY FOR THE CHALLENGE?

Pedal for a purpose and help end Parkinson's with the PD500 Shake Off the Hills Challenge. Enjoy Chester County's gorgeous fall colors, scenic roads and historic places. The PD500 was recommended by Active.com as one of eight fall, scenic rides in the nation and the only ride in Pennsylvania! http://www.active.com/cycling/articles/8-fall-metric-century-rides.  

You will begin your ride with hot cider--end with a cold beer from Dogfish.  Choose from three gorgeous, challenging and hilly routes:

16-mile (rolling hills across a covered bridge with 928 ft. vertical climbs);*

45-mile (challenging rolling hills through historic St. Peters Village with 3,444 ft. vertical climbs);*

Metric Century (hill, hills and more hills that takes you through St. Peters Village and to beautiful French Creek State Park with 4,826 ft. of vertical climbs).*

The ride begins and ends at the Ludwigs Corner Horse Show and fairgrounds in Glenmoore,  PA.  The ride would not be complete without MORE 101.1FM Street Team spinning the hits at 7am, bike tune-ups by Performance Bicycle, properly stocked rest-stops, sag support and, of course, live "Rock 'n' Roll" music by Scarlett Sometime and Sonny Ray Ramos.

Return from your ride enjoy a hearty BBQ lunch at the fairgrounds.  Also, one free complementary Dogfish Head beer for those 21 years and over. Family and friends are welcomed to cheer you on at the finish line and enjoy the day, too.  Don't forget to tell them to bring a blanket to enjoy the bands!
