    Sunday, July 3, 2011 — Many bicycle rides cross states that are measured in hundreds of miles and many days. The White Clay Bicycle Club offers an alternative that is modest in time, effort and stamina (a bicycle ride nearly anyone can do) that crosses and “doublecrosses” an entire state in only 31 total miles over flat terrain. In addition to the traditional route, we offer a 62-mile (metric century) route for those who would like a longer ride. The 31-mile loop includes a food stop. The 62-mile loop includes three food stops. Visit the event website for more.
    Sunday, July 10, 2011 — The Fair Hill Classic is one of the most popular cross-country mountain bike races on the East Coast. The 16th Annual Fair Hill Classic is scheduled for Sunday, July 10 and will be part of the Mid-Atlantic Super Series (MASS). The 2011 course has no laps – just miles and miles of beautiful singletrack in the 5,600-acre Fair Hill Natural Resources Management Area near Newark, Delaware. [Full Details]
    Saturday, August 13th, 2011 — the Mike Clark Legacy Foundation will be sponsoring our 4th Annual Mike Clark Memorial Ride. Please check back for further details and a digital save the date. We expect this year’s ride to be the best yet. With your help and donations, we can make this event be the best in the area. [Details] 
    Saturday, August 27, 2011 — Ride beautiful, scenic routes (35, 65, and 100 miles) taking you through flat to gently rolling farmland in central Delaware. All routes will be marked with support (until 5:00 p.m.). A wide array of bicycle friendly food will be available at rest stops at regular intervals (five on the century). This year features partial re-routing of the century loop, and a stepped up effort to coordinate tar & chip maintenance with DelDOT. Visit the event website for more.

    The state’s largest and most established cycling event — will be Saturday, September 10, starting at 411 Legislative Avenue in historic Dover, Delaware. Last year, 1,400 cyclists from a 14-state region participated in Delaware’s longest-running and largest bike tour event. Register online or register by mail now to save time and money. If you register early, you save $15, plus time it takes to register day of the event. Teams of 10 or more, when registering together, can save $20 per person. Visit their event webpage for more.

    Saturday, October 15, 2011 — Come out and join the “fun” as the White Clay Bicycle Club hosts the 32nd annual Savage Century ride, one of the most scenic and challenging rides in our area (especially if you choose one of the longer routes). Select a route – 40 or 60 miles, or, 75 or 100 miles (if you’re ready to really put your training to the test) – and enjoy one of the premier rides in the mid-Atlantic region with the support of the White Clay Bicycle Club. The 40- and 60-mile loops have a few shorter climbs (to keep those cyclists honest!), while the major hills are only on the 75- and 100-mile loops, which will make you glad you came to ride the Savage.

    The Trail Spinners of Delaware, Maryland and Pennsylvania would like to introduce you to mountain biking on local trails in White Clay Creek and Lums Pond State Parks in Delaware, and Fair Hill Natural Resources Management Area in Maryland.  This is a free program open to anyone over 10 years old.
