Shenandoah Weekend 29-31 July, 2022 REGISTER TODAY!


Shenandoah Weekend is back!!!


Were you bummed out that there is no Bike Virginia this year? Well, things are looking up!


Shenandoah weekend is once again on the calendar. The dates will be Friday, July 29 through Sunday, July 31. We have biking in Virginia right here, 3 days!


Registration is now open for this Members' ride weekend! Registration can be done by PPTC Members by clicking here or through the Calendar posting for the weekend. Non-members interested in participating can sign up first for the PPTC one-month free trial membership then register for the weekend through the Calendar posting.


Participants will be responsible for reserving their own lodging. We suggest around the Woodstock area where you can find hotels, B&Bs and other rentals.


What do you get for registration?

• Friday night welcome party including pizza and beer (not unlimited) at Swover Creek Brewery; 

• Saturday catered BBQ picnic in Woodstock; 

• take along snacks for the rides; 

• 3 days of riding, new friends to make, beautiful scenery and a very good time!


The rides are being finalized now. We can tell you that we are planning for Saturday and Sunday rides to start from a High School in Woodstock. This is rideable from several hotels. Route 11 chips and the Meems Bottom bridge, longtime favorite sites, will be on some of the routes.


For the Friday ride we are considering a start that is OTW and will give you time to ride, continue your drive, get showered and arrive at the welcome party. More details to come!


Hope you can join us!

Twister Century REGISTER TODAY! 

Want to volunteer? Sign up here!

 

 

Are you ready to Twist again? 

 

 

Please join us on Sunday, September 25th for the annual Twister Century hosted by Potomac Pedalers!

 

Join us in Northern Maryland (and Pennsylvania if you're twisting with us) for a superb Fall Century event. Riders who choose to complete a half, metric, or full century will be treated to a rolling course, which starts from the Walkersville Fire Department Activity Hall and heads up to Memorial Park in Taneytown. From Memorial Park, cyclists can choose to Twist It Up, and either head back to Walkersville to complete a half century, take one of the loops heading north from the park to complete a metric century or 75 miles, or if you're feeling intrepid, do both extra loops for a full century! Feeling like you want to ramble and enjoy the scenery a bit more, including our region's covered bridges and quiet country roads? Start your day at Memorial Park and enjoy any combination of the loops for a 25 or 38 mile ride! 

 

Once you're done Twisting, join us for a post-ride party back at the Activity Hall in Walkersville. Food and refreshments will be provided, but we're counting on you to bring the stories of your adventure today.  

 

Registration for PPTC members is OPEN

Not a member and want to get in on early bird pricing? Sign up on our website today!

 

VOLUNTEERS! Want to help out? We're looking for people to assist with Walkersville Activity Center setup/party breakdown, the Memorial Park rest stop, SAG, storage, and shopping runs. Please indicate if you would like to ride on the day of the event, and we'll make it happen! If you or someone you know can help, please click on the link above. Thank you!

Lewes Delaware Weekend October 14-16 REGISTRATION WILL OPEN MID-2022!

The Lewes Delaware Weekend will be held again in Mid-October in 2022! Lewes is a small, picturesque, and historic town near Rehoboth Beach. This weekend is noted for its sociability and ease in meeting new people. Rides range in length from 20 to 65+ miles and are flat, although there are usually headwinds at the beach. Many rides visit nearby wildlife refuges, Dogfish Head Craft Brewery, and remote beaches.



PPTC hosted the following annual events pre-COVID 19, and hopes to host these events again in the near future:


Virtual Back Yards Century.  In 2020, PPTC held a virtual two-week long virtual Back Yards Century Ride that included a scavenger hunt, group virtual rides, ride challenge, and a virtual social event.  



Back Roads Century.  The Back Roads Century is held in September in Shepherdstown, West Virginia. Located just across the bridge from the Antietam Battlefield, cyclists enjoy historic sites and scenic routes.  The Back Roads Century offers 100, 64, 47 and 52, 25 and 29 mile rides as well as group social events.


Nokesville.  The annual Nokesville Picnic in the Park Ride is typically held in May. This ride is open to all members & their family & friends and is geared toward bringing cyclists of all skill levels together and to welcome new cyclists to PPTC!  This classic ride takes you through the rolling Virginia rural country-side and finishes with a picnic at a local park! It includes “casual” rides of 10 and 18 miles—targeted for new cyclists and for families and longer route options of 30, 42, and 53 miles.
