The Covered Bridge Metric Century is a classic Pennsylvania ride now in its 38th year. It offers beautiful routes of 100k, 50k, and 25k, covering some of the most scenic cycling terrain anywhere. Each route traverses through covered bridges and past Amish farms. The routes all cover rolling terrain with only moderate climbing.
Proceeds from the ride benefit the Lancaster Bicycle Club’s grant program. Over $275,000 has been donated for covered bridge restoration and bike-related initiatives since 1999.
NEW FOR 2016: Enhanced rest stops with new food options, and more! Stay tuned!

Contact Sharon Bochman if you are interested in going up at firstname.lastname@example.org. She will be going up on Saturday and riding the Heritage Rail Trail in York PA that afternoon for a easy warm up ride. I can provide you with a lot of information about local hotels, restaurants and fun stuff to do in the area. I plan to stay at the Penn Marriott downtown Lancaster on Sunday so I don't have to fight traffic to return home. There is a very active arts community in Lancaster and the restaurants are wonderful!
