      Well-stocked rest stops

      REGISTRATION CLOSES AT 900 RIDERS, REGISTER EARLY!

    This is THE premier cycling event in scenic Bucks County. Timed each year to be held on a rain-free weekend with the gorgeous fall colors shouting out, the CBR, as our members call it, is our best event ever.

    You have five beautiful routes to choose from -- 20, 30, 33, 50 or 63 miles -- loads of great food, and the option to get our prized long-sleeve T-shirt. Travel through up to six historic covered bridges. Fatter tired bikes work best on the cinder-based paths for the 20 and 30 mile routes, which visit one or two bridges. The rides conclude with a Grande Finale Picnic.

    Rides start and end at Tinicum Park, along the shores of the Delaware River. Join 2000 riders from all over the northeastern United States and ride through some of the most beautiful areas in this part of the world.

     

    READ THIS before you register. READ IT AGAIN right before the ride.

     

    Safety Rules and Guidelines:

    All participants must wear a bike helmet. All participants must obey local traffic laws and law enforcement professionals. Failure to do so will result in fines and tickets. Ride single-file when encountering traffic or when being passed by another rider. Never ride more than two abreast at any time and never cross the (yellow line) center of the roadway. Additional safety guidelines can be found in our FAQ.

    Food, Glorious Food!

    All that pedaling can work up a hunger! Good thing our rest stops are well-stocked with fresh fruit, water, sports drinks, home-made baked goods and other treats. Our Grande Finale Lunch (11:30-3:00) features something for meat-eaters and veg-heads alike! Rest stop hours:

    • Bulls Island/20 & 30 mile routes: (9:30-2:30)
    • Ottsville/33 mile route (9:00-1:00)
    • Pipersville/33, 50 & 63 mile routes (9:30-3:00)
    • Weisel Youth Hostel/50 & 63 mile routes (9:30-1:00)
    • Durham-Nox Elementary/50 & 63 mile routes (9:00-12:00)

  • Kevin H.

    Hey leticia and john, i won't be able to make the covered bridges ride. not enough time. but i'll do an easy SRT ride sunday morning - i can squeeze that in cause it's close to home.

  • John A.

    Im thinking about it Kevin... Let me know

    October 3, 2013

    • Kevin H.

      OK John, we'll see how it looks in about a week.

    I haven't registered yet but mark and I want to do it. However we were leaning towards the 30 mile bull run one due to our poor hill climbing skills

    October 3, 2013

    • Kevin H.

      Yeah, I haven't registered yet either. I'll have to wait until it gets closer to know whether I can do it or not. Unfortunately there's a 900 rider limit - but will have to chance that. We'll see how many are interested. I may have to do the easy one - not enough training.

      October 4, 2013

  • Kevin H.

    hooray, leticia!

    Anybody thinking about doing this ride, please coordinate with me by messaging here. It's another 'limited' ride - to 900 riders, so just to make sure no one gets stuck registering alone - if anyone is thinking about going, we can be sure to have at least the first few riders register at the same time. I haven't registered yet as my schedule is up in the air, but if a bunch of us want to go, I'll try to make it happen.
