50 M - Registration Opens at 9 am, Ride Departs between 9 am and 10 am

Where:
This scenic ride begins and ends at Victory Brewing Company in Parkesburg, Pennsylvania and will highlight the Enola Low Grade Bike Path.

What
This ride begins and ends at Victory Brewing Company, and travels through Lancaster and West Chester counties. The routes are almost entirely on rural roads and bike paths. The Enola Low Grade Bike Path is approximately 5 miles from Victory Brewing. The majority of the ride is on the bike path. 

Distances:
Distances are the Halloween Victory Tour XL (approx 50 M) and the Halloween Victory Tour Lite (approx 30 M).  
Please note: routes are subject to change. Routes are not considered final until they are sent out to pre-registered cyclists following the close of pre-registration.

Route Amenities
The 30 M (approx 1,000 ft of climbing) route will have 1 aid station. 
The 50 M (approx 1,600 ft of climbing) route will have 3 aid stations.
Aid stations will be well-stocked with goodies to keep you moving through the route.
The route will be well-marked, however, you are ultimately responsible, so please download maps and cue sheets and GPS files (will be sent to registered riders once online registration closes).
We will NOT have Cue Sheets for you at the event, please print your own or download the PDF file of the cue sheet and save paper. The event director may alter the proposed routes due to acts of nature, road closures, and/or local recommendations. 

Remember, this is not a race. Enjoy a ride taking in the history and culture of Lancaster and West Chester counties with your friends, family, and perhaps new friends you meet along the way. We are riding on routes / bike paths that have many other users.

Why: 
This year, know that whatever route you ride, you'll be supporting Velo Amis and our Mission. We love the Enola Low Grade Trail and have donated a bike fix-it station along the trail. We hope you enjoy this trail and we will support the trail with donations of more fix-it stations. Please read more about Velo Amis and our Mission and who we Support.  

Other Rules & Guidelines:

  • Unfortunately we are not able to allow “children’s bike trailers” for the ride. We feel that this ride is not appropriate for children in trailers. On the other hand, if you are riding with your child on a pull behind bike where the child is pedaling (similar to a tandem bicycle) this is allowed. We appreciate your understanding. Note that your child will need to be registered (small fee to cover insurance). Contact us to register a child on a trailer bike.
  • Do not bring outside alcohol to the brewery.
  • Follow the rules of the road. Routes will be open to traffic. Please, NO headphones. Please ride single file and be courteous to other users. All routes are on heavily used bicycle and walking paths. We want to be invited back, so please be good stewards!
  • Bike Helmet Required.

*Volunteers contact Velo Amis by emailing info@veloamis.org for more information on volunteering opportunities.

Thanks from the Velo Amis Team!
