44TH DVBC Brandywine Tour - 2019
The 2019 Tour is Complete - Stay Tuned for 2020 Tour Information.
44th Annual Brandywine Bike Tour: Sunday, August 25, 2019
Covered bridges,* cute towns, crazy big vistas! Riders cycled all-paved, low-traffic roads on this fully supported Tour of lush, rolling Chester County horse farm country. Our longer routes meandered into Amish farm areas of Lancaster County and riders visited our iconic Slumbering Groundhog rest stop. Five rest stops in all served a varied menu including bagels, hoagies, pizza, vegan/vegetarian options, ice cream, and much more.
What set the Brandywine Bike Tour apart from others was the beauty and challenge of each route due to rolling/hilly terrain. So let your training begin for next year's very special Tour of a magnificent landscape.

“I really enjoyed the Brandywine Tour. It was very well organized. The staff was fantastic. Easy to sign in in the morning. I liked the overall size of the event. It was a manageable size group of riders. I think this is the best organized ride I have done. I think I have done around 10 or so by now?? Thanks for all the hard work!” --- 2018 Brandywine Tour rider feedback.
