Ride the Back Roads Century in Shepherdstown, West Virginia!

Saturday, April 20, 2019

Look for more info in mid-April


The Potomac Pedalers’ annual Back Roads Century will again feature rides from 25 to 100 miles in the rolling countryside of the lower Shenandoah Valley.  Each ride is fully supported with route markings, mechanical and first-aid support, and rest stops with food and beverage. More info to come on other activities, entertainment, and volunteer opportunities.   

The Back Roads Century (BRC) planning committee still needs key leads for (1) Safety & Command Center (2) Volunteers (3) Ride Marshals (4) Saturday Rides (5) Transportation (6) Sponsors.  Please contact us if you’re interested or have questions.  Volunteering is fun!

The event depends on Potomac Pedaler volunteers and the hosts: Shepherdstown and Shepherd University (where the rides begin and end).

The century is the main fundraiser for the Potomac Pedalers Touring Club.  In addition, grants and donations go to many local Shepherdstown organizations.  Past recipients have included Future Farmers of America, Shenandoah Fire Department, Potomac Valley Audubon Society, Antietam Audio Society, and Shepherd University Student Affairs.

BRC Co-chairs are Margaret McBride & Dalis Davidson. The planning committee is building 2019 BRC on the great planning of 2018 BRC Chair Sallie Williams and will execute what Hurricane Florence canceled.
