We’ve hit 70 degrees and your calendar is filling up for with rides for the year! There’s an event you won’t want to miss – the annual Back Roads Century in Shepherdstown, WV held on September 16th!

The Back Roads Century is much more than a Century. There are rides for all levels – distances from 23 to 101 miles – so invite your friends and family to join in and make a weekend of it!

You can expect all the best from last year plus some new features -

  • New Jersey Designs that your non-riding friends will want to buy! 
  • Routes will take you along rolling hills, past apple orchards and farms, and have you following the Potomac River. 
  • Up to five fully stocked Rest Stops will keep you riding strong.
  • Towels and showers are available before your ride home.
  • The "After Ride Celebration" at historic Popidicon Mansion on the Shepherd University grounds with mouthwatering food, a selection of craft brews at the Beer Garden and entertainment is your final reward.
  • Make it a weekend! We will be offering two free rides on Saturday, September 15, that will include tours of local historic sites. Stay at one of the Hotels offering our group a discount.
  • With Special Events going on all weekend and Foodie Paradise, cyclists and non-cyclists alike can enjoy everything Shepherdstown has to offer!
