2021 Three Creek Century

Larry P Wasser  | Published on 7/7/2021

Register for the HBC Three Creek Century by August 15 for best pricing. August 15 is also the deadline for ordering Century t-shirts.

This event is HBC’s largest source of funding, so please come out and support your bike club by registering, volunteering or both! Volunteer sign-up will be available soon.

 

 

The Three Creek Century may not be the biggest ride (about 650 riders participate) and it may not be the best known. 

But it might be just what you are looking for. 

 

 

The Three Creek Century will be held at the Penn Township Fire Department Complex, 1750 Pine Road, Newville PA on Sunday, Sept. 19. Registration is only $35 if you sign up by August 15 for this fully supported event which features low traffic country roads with scenic creek side riding and mountain views.

 

The Three Creek Century is noted for its great food, including homemade soup and thousands of fresh baked cookies! Route choices include 25, 50, 75 and 100 miles plus the option to ride18 miles on the lovely, traffic-free Cumberland Valley Rail Trail. The South Mountain Challenge option is again being offered on the 50 mile route. All 50 mile riders will bike to the rest stop at Shippensburg Township Park where they will have the choice of taking the traditional route back to the firehouse or adding in over 1,000 feet of additional climbing up to Big Flat. Be sure to invite your friends and relatives to join you on this beautiful and well organized ride. 

 

As a bonus, all riders have the option to ride the 4 mile gradual climb to the top of Kings Gap State Park which offers spectacular views of the Cumberland Valley.  The 4 mile downhill on the return trip is truly exhilarating.

 

Proceeds from the Three Creek Century are used to fund HBC's Community Grant program, which provides funding for several bicycling-related nonprofit charities, as well as to cover operating expenses for the Club.

 

To assure rider safety, all CDC recommended COVID guidelines will be adhered to.
