Ride Course Info
This year’s course will feature a 20 mile & 50 mile course that can be ridden continuously. Riders will exit Montgomery County Community College via Morris Road and pedal northwest over beautifully paved roads. After several traffic lights, the course turns into lush, tree-lined country roads as you wind over creeks and streams through the townships of Towamencin and Worcester. There will be a fully-stocked Power Stop at the halfway point (Jacobs Reiff Park) on the course for you to refuel and recharge at. You’ll return back to MCCC coming the opposite way on Morris Road, and from there, you’ll have many options. You can head back out on course for another loop, stop in the LIVESTRONG Village for lunch, meet with family and friends or simply complete your ride for the day through the finish line and enjoy the LIVESTRONG Village amenities!
The 50 mile course has been recently added to the event. Much of the previous year’s course is included such as the fantastic cycling through Green Lane Park which will be the site for a second Power Stop. Riders will rejoin the 20 mile course at Quarry Road & Morris and will follow that course back to MCCC.
