    • Lancaster, Pa

    The Lancaster Covered Bridge Classic (formerly the Covered Bridge Metric Century) is a classic Pennsylvania ride now in its 39th year. It offers beautiful routes of 100 miles, 62 miles, 31 miles, and 15 miles, covering some of the most scenic cycling terrain anywhere. Each route traverses through covered bridges and past Amish farms.

    The routes all cover rolling terrain with only moderate climbing with the exception of 100 mile route. The 100 mile option is a challenging ride that includes a hilly 38 mile loop that starts and ends at the lunch rest stop in Stevens, PA. There are no official rest stops on the 38 mile loop, so please stock up at the lunch stop.

    Proceeds from the ride benefit the Lancaster Bicycle Club’s grant program. Over $275,000 has been donated for covered bridge restoration and bike-related initiatives since 1999.

    Date: Sunday August 20, 2017

    Where: HACC’s Lancaster Campus 1641 Old Philadelphia Pike Lancaster, PA 17602

    Start: Rolling start: 7 am – 9 am. Riders must start before 9 am and end by 3:30 pm.

    Bike MS: Bike to the Bay is a ride that will take you farther than you’ve ever gone before. What makes this ride so special? This 2-day event, with route options for all cycling abilities from 20-175 miles, will take you through the flat farmlands and rural towns of lower Delaware. With fully catered rest stops every 12 miles, you’ll understand why cyclists affectionately refer to the Ride as “Buffet to the Bay.” At the end of the Ride, you’ll roll past beautiful beaches, finishing on the bay to cheers and a band that will keep the party going.
