About This Activity

Pedal for a purpose and help end Parkinson's with the PD500 Rock 'n' Roll Ride. You choose from three routes, 15-mile (gently rolling hills); 40-mile (rolling hills); or Metric Century (hills!).  The ride begins and ends in Malvern,  PA (a suburb of Philly) and travels through the rolling (and sometimes challenging hills) countryside of West Chester, and Unionville. Philly's MORE 101.1FM will be on hand in the morning to get the party started. The ride would not be complete without properly stocked rest-stops including Northbrook's Market with live music by Scarlett Sometime and their famous apple-cider donuts (40 mile route and Metric Century route).  Return from your ride and be greeted with the sounds of live rock music by Sonny Ray & The Left Edge, a hot lunch provided by Bertucci's and a special appearance by the Philadelphia Soul Cheerleaders!  Family and friends 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! 

New this year will be a health fair with vendors, food, special guest speakers, and a silent auction from 11:00 - 3:00pm. 

See you at the PD500 where we strive together toward the finish line on the fast track to a cure.

This is a rain or shine event!
