Last year, 1,400 cyclists from a 14-state region participated. If you register early, you save $15, plus time it takes to register day of the event.

Why do cyclists enjoy the Amish Country Bike Tour?
You DO NOT have to raise funds and obtain pledges -- part of your registration fee is a contribution to five local organizations including the Central Delaware YMCA.
You DO NOT cycle on miles of major highways. The Amish Country Bike Tour is completely on scenic back roads.
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 Amish Schoolhouse where members of the Amish community serve home-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.
Proceeds from this year's bike tour will benefit the Central Delaware YMCA, the Amish Schoolhouse education program, three local participating churches and the Bike Tour fund.
