ARE YOU READY FOR THE CHALLENGE?
Cyclists! Join the 4th Annual PD500 Rock 'n' Roll Ride at beautiful Ludwig's Corner Horse Show Grounds as we pedal toward a cure. Choose from a challenging 16 mi, 45 mi, or Metric Century course that will take your breath away and help pedal past Parkinson's! THE METRIC CENTURY offers experienced riders a combination of picturesque pastures, hills and valleys. Challenge yourself with a few of Chester County's finest hills like Pumpkin Hill Road, Country Park Road, Coventryville Road, and the Nantmeal wall. While you are at it, visit Wyebrook Farm for your first rest stop and see one of Chester County's premier agribusinesses. Your second rest stop will take you to the one of Northern Chester County's scenic parks. Then continue on through the quaint village of St. Peter. Take some time to walk the boulders or cool off in the stream. Jump back on your bike and head back to the Ludwig's Corner Horse Show but remember you have to climb the Nantmeal wall after you roll through the sleepy town of Nantmeal. Refuel at the end of your ride with BBQ pulled chicken sandwiches hot off the grill provided by The Meat House of Chadds Ford, some tasty treats, one complimentary beer provided by Dogfish Head Brewery and entertainment. What more can you ask for??? So stop dreaming and go register!
