Savage Century

Savage Century

September 21 2019
Newark, Delaware, USA

The White Clay Bicycle Club invites you to come out and take the challenge as it once again hosts the 37th annual Savage Century ride, one of the most scenic and challenging rides in our area (especially if you choose one of the longer routes). Select a route – 40, 60, 75 or 100 miles – and enjoy one of the premier rides in the mid-Atlantic region hosted by the White Clay Bicycle Club.

The 40- and 60-mile loops have a few shorter climbs, while the major hills are on the 75- and 100-mile loops!

15savage-qrMany have enjoyed the challenge of the Savage as a “ride of passage”, while others return year after year to simply enjoy  the rural beauty of Chester and Lancaster Counties – from the simple  charm of Pennsylvania Dutch and Amish farmlands to the scenic vistas from the hills along the Susquehanna River. Warm up on the rolling hills heading west out of Newark, DE toward Nottingham, PA. Then head for the hills and put your training to the test, on the infamous Bald Eagle Hill, Fishing Creek Hill, and Duck Hill!

For those new to the Savage Century, it is recommended for the longer routes that bikes be equipped with a low gear of about 40 gear-inches (e.g. 28 tooth rear sprocket and 42-tooth chain ring on a typical road bike with a 27 inch tire) or lower to prevent undue straining of your knees on the major hills. Come for the ride, ride for the challenge!
