411 Legislative Ave
Routes begin and end on Legislative Mall, 411 Legislative Ave., Dover, DE and are 16, 25, 50, 62 or 100 miles through peaceful, flat(!), low-traffic Amish countryside.
To promote safety at the start and to ensure that rest stops are not overwhelmed, with everyone finishing when the food and entertainment will be starting, a staggered start is currently planned for this year:
7 am – 8 am – 100 mile riders
8 am – 9 am – 50 & 62 mile riders
9 am – 10:30 am – 16 & 25 mile riders
Up to 5 rest stops are included Harvest Ridge Winery (MaryDel), Painted Stave Distillery (Smyrna), Felton Stop and Emanuel AME Church(Hartly), depending on distance, but all routes stop at the Amish Schoolhouse (Dover), where you’ll enjoy our famous, fresh, locally-baked pie!
Following the bike tour, there will be an opportunity to purchase photos of your ride from Finisher Pix, finisher awards, food, deejay, live music 11 am- 3pm, a variety of vendors, our first swap meet, lunch provided by Rolling Revolution food trucks plus adult beverages from NKS Distributors and bottle sales through Harvest Ridge Winery with the purchase of adult beverage/bottle tickets. All held on Legislative Mall (411 Legislative Ave) in historic downtown Dover, Delaware.
NEW FOR YOU IN ’22!
Our very first SWAP MEET will be held during the 2022 tour on Legislative Mall. Limited space available, no commercial vendors. First come, first served.
Jersey and T-shirt size charts are shown below and preorders of jerseys and T-shirts are discounted until the 2022 designs are approved and posted. We do recommend ordering your merch BEFORE the event. No matter how many we pre-order, we always sell out!
For those participants who are local, or who may want to spend the weekend in Dover, we are planning on having several “club rides” on Sunday for no additional cost. These rides will be led by a local ride leader and will be a more casual way to see additional places in Delaware and meet area cyclists.
The greater Dover area offers a number of accommodation and dining options. Delaware isn’t very big, but that doesn’t mean you will want to stay too far outside of the Dover area. Kent County Tourism has compiled a wonderful searchable resource for visitors available on their website. If you limit your search to Dover, you’ll be in the right area to get to the start point by 7 am. While you can start at any time, we do recommend an earlier start for any of the longer rides to ensure that rest stops and SAG support are available. The event will close at 5 pm.
