Why do cyclists prefer the Amish Country Bike Tour?
You DO NOT have to raise funds or obtain pledges -- part of your registration fee is a contribution to five local community organizations including the Central Delaware YMCA. Plus, the producer of the event, Kent County Tourism, is also a non-profit community event, so all proceeds benefit great causes!
You DO NOT cycle on miles of major highways. The Amish Country Bike Tour is a tour of Delaware's historic capital city, scenic back roads, Amish communities, farmlands and orchard roads, as well as quaint small towns.
The event starts and stops on Dover's beautiful Legislative Mall where there's plenty of free parking -- that means there's no need to find a ride back to your vehicle. When you're done, you're ready to relax!
The bike tour, suited for all ages and abilities, includes 15, 25, 50, 62 and 100-mile loops through the flatlands of Delaware's Amish farmlands. Rest stops include the famous "Pie Stop" at the Amish Schoolhouse, where members of the Amish community and other volunteers serve locally-baked pies and cookies. Several additional food stops will be included, featuring healthy snacks, sandwiches and beverages. Following the tour, cyclists will be treated to a catered barbecue meal of pulled pork or chicken and all the trimmings, and vegetarian meals will also be provided.
