Taneytown Twister Century
After a long year of chaos and uncertainty, we are delighted to offer a century on August 29th to our Cycling Community!
Please join us for the first ever Taneytown Twister Century for Potomac Pedalers! In the spirit and positive health vibes of our region, we're Keeping It Safe and Simple!
Riders who choose to complete a half, metric, or full century will be treated to a rolling course, which starts from Walkersville Fire 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!
Cue sheets and Ride With GPS files will be available soon to all registered riders.
Our launch points and rest stop at the Fire Hall and Memorial Park Pavilion will safely support our riders with cold water and electrolyte beverages, as well as pre-packaged grab-and-go snacks.
Registration opens June 29th to PPTC members and on July 10th to the public. Registration fees upon opening will be $40 for PPTC members and $75 for non-members (which includes a 1-year PPTC membership!). Registration fees will increase to $50 and $85 on August 1st.
**NOTE** There will be NO on-site registration.
