Pedaling & Paddling at the 21st Annual Amish Country Bike Tour

Summertime means finding the time to get outdoors and have some fun is serious business.

    Saturday, Sept 8, 2007

      Discover Kent County, Delaware’s beautiful Amish countryside on your choice of 15, 25, 50, 62 or 100 mile loops in mostly flat, rural areas. All routes are SAG patrolled and include up to 4 food stops, including the famous Amish Schoolhouse stop where you can enjoy homemade cookies, muffins and pies. All loops end at Legislative Mall, downtown Dover’s outdoor park where you can eat your picnic lunch (included in your registration fee) with friends and family.

      Day-of registration opens at 7:00AM and the ride begins at 8:00AM on Saturday, September 8th with an escort by an Amish buggy and the City of Dover Police Motorcycle unit through downtown Dover, out to the city limits and on to your chosen route.

      I was excited to learn that this year, 5 kayaking tours have been added on Saturday and Sunday provided by Return to Nature Outfitters.

      After you bike or kayak, stay awhile to listen to live music from local bands or get a massage for sore muscles.
      You can register online, and an early bird discount applies up to August 25th.

      The event will go on, rain or shine, and is sponsored by Kent County Delaware Convention and Visitors Bureau.
