Amish County Bike Tour early deadline approaching

DOVER – Delaware’s 30th Annual Amish Country Bike Tour, presented by WSFS Bank, will take place on Saturday Sept. 10 in Dover. The Amish Country Bike Tour is Delaware’s longest running and largest cycling event. Those wishing to take part in the Early Bird discount have until July 1 to register at www.AmishCountryBikeTour.com.

By taking advantage of the Early Bird discount, bikers can save $20 off the registration price.  Until July 1, registration price is $40 for adults and $20 for attendees ages 5-16. From July 1 to July 31, registration is $50 for adults and $25 for ages 5-16.  After Aug. 1, registration costs $60 for adults and $30 for ages 5 to 16. Participants under age 5 participate for free.

The event includes a bike tour map, giveaways, and up to four food and rest stops including the famous “pie stop” at the Amish Schoolhouse and the after-tour catered picnic.

The Amish Bike Tour in 2015 included 2,300 cyclists from 19 states and England. Kent County Tourism hopes that 2016 will bring an even larger variety of visitors from across the nation to one of Delaware’s biggest events of the year.
