This ride begins and ends at Old Stone Cider. The long route is a four park tour covering Fair Hill, White Clay Creek, Redd Park and Middle Run Park. The short route stays in Fair Hill Park. Both courses are primarily on single track trail but there is some road, gravel, double track and field in the routes.
Long Route: Approximately 44 miles
Short Route: Approximately 22 miles
The short route will have 2 rest stops at approximately 8 miles and 14 miles
The long route will have 3 rest stops at approximately 15 miles, 30 miles and 37 miles.
You will need to be fully self supported on this ride.
Rest stops 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 beauty of our parks. We are riding on trails and bike paths that have many other users including equestrians in Fair Hill.
Ride is limited to 225 riders
