About This Activity

The Covered Bridge Metric Century is a classic Pennsylvania ride now in its 38th year. It offers beautiful routes of 100k, 50k, and 25k, covering some of the most scenic cycling terrain anywhere. Each route traverses through covered bridges and past Amish farms.


The routes all cover rolling terrain with only moderate climbing.


Proceeds from the ride benefit the Lancaster Bicycle Club’s grant program. Over $275,000 has been donated for bike-related initiatives since 1999. Plus, the Club donates funds that go directly to restoring the beloved covered bridges of Lancaster County.



We've made some changes this year, including revised routes and revamped rest stop offerings.
