About This Activity


Pedal for a purpose and help end Parkinson's with the PD500 Shake Off the Hills Challenge. Enjoy Chester County's gorgeous fall colors, scenic roads and historic places. Start off your ride with hot cider--end with a cold beer from Dogfish.  Choose from three gorgeous, challenging and hilly routes:

16-mile (rolling hills across a covered bridge with 928 ft. vertical climbs);

45-mile (challenging rolling hills through historic St. Peters Village with 3,444 ft. vertical climbs); 

Metric Century (hill, hills and more hills that takes you through St. Peters Village and to beautiful French Creek State Park with 4,826 ft. of vertical climbs). 

The ride begins and ends at our new location, the Ludwigs Corner Horse Show and fairgrounds in Glenmoore,  PA.  The ride would not be complete without properly stocked rest-stops, sag support and, of course, live "Rock 'n' Roll" music by Scarlett Sometime and Sonny Ray Ramos. Return from your ride enjoy a hearty rockin' lunch at the fairgrounds.  Also, one free complementary Dogfish Head beer for those 21 years and over. Family and friends are welcomed to cheer you on at the finish line and enjoy the day, too.  Don't forget to tell them to bring a blanket to enjoy the bands! 

Register now!

See you at the Challenge where we strive together toward the finish line on the fast track to a cure.

This is a rain or shine event!

No refunds as this is a charity ride.
