This is a Team Red Fun Ride.
Team Red Fun Rides are organized rides we've selected as options for Team Red members to get together for a great day of riding together. These rides are additional options to our weekly training rides and FOCUS Rides (where we really try to get as many Team Red members out as possible). For the most part, Fun Rides are rides in which some Team Red members have shown interest, and you might like to join in.

Delaware's 27th Annual Amish Country Bike Tour -- the state's largest and most established cycling events -- will be Saturday, September 7, 2013, starting at 411 Legislative Avenue in historic Dover, Delaware. Last year, 2,200+ cyclists from 25 states and England.
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.
