    ARE YOU READY FOR THE CHALLENGE?

    Join the 6th Annual PD500 as we help end the challenge of Parkinson’s. Road cyclists have a choice of three rides, with the 16-miler, the 45-miler, & the Metric Century (Please know your abilities.  This ride is recommended for the experienced rider comfortable with extreme hill climbs covering over 4,800 feet of vertical gain.)  The PD500 ride is quickly gaining a reputation as not only a ride of stunning beauty, but a test of endurance, ability and strength.

    CHOOSE YOUR CHALLENGE:
     
    THE 16 MILER
    This ride has rolling hills and crosses over a quaint covered bridge.  Don't let the distance fool you, this can be a challenging ride with over 900 feet of vertical climbs. One water stop is provided.
                                                   
                                                      THE 24 MILER
    New for this year is a 24 mile option that will still challenger you but leave you with a little left in the tank when you return.
     
    THE 45 MILER
    This ride has some very challenging rolling hills that goes through Chester County.  You will take in scenic views that will take your breath away, both literally and figuratively with approx. 3,400 feet of vertical climbs. This ride will have two rest stops for you to refuel.  
     
     THE MEGA-METRIC CENTURY
    The biggest challenge of them all offers the experienced hill-seeking 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. Can you handle over 4,800 feet of vertical climbs?  Then this ride was made for you!
