Back Roads Century

September 22 2019
Shepherdstown, West Virginia, USA

The Back Roads Century is one of the premier cycling events in the mid-Atlantic region, and is also considered one of the most beautiful rides in America. Each fall in late September, Potomac Pedalers invites cycling enthusiasts of all ability levels for a great day of riding and fun in the Shenandoah Valley; with distances of 25, 30, 50, 65 and 100 miles. It’s a fully supported event providing cue sheets, rest stops with food and drinks, as well as mechanical support during your ride.

The Back Roads Century travels through several small towns and villages that helped shape our nation’s history. We start in Berryville, VA, a colonial crossroads settlement. You’ll pass through the historic towns of Middleway and White Post. And one of our rest stops is at the Burwell-Morgan Mill, established in 1785. Another popular destination during our ride is White Post Restorations, which is where we serve our "world famous” tomato sandwiches; freshly made under a shady oak tree, for you to relax and enjoy before completing your ride. After you conclude your ride, we have a barbecue cookout with hot dogs and other treats – this is included with your registration fee! You also receive a free Back Roads Century logo t-shirt to commemorate your day.
