Join us for 89 miles of racing over challenging, hilly terrain with complete police-moderated intersections. And a medium course of 59 miles at a more casual pace. Fully stocked aid stations and mechanical and SAG van support. A finisher medal & post race meal for everyone!
GFNY Pennsylvania race week activities like packet pickup, the race start & finish and post-race festivities will take place at the central downtown The Bond venue in the Royal Square District. The Royal Square District is full of galleries, unique shops, restaurants and murals, you’re at the heart of York. With ample onsite parking, race day planning for you and your supporters is very easy.
The race starts from downtown York, then you will head west for 10 miles along well-paved roads into the York countryside before taking on a 30-mile loop. Ride past farm fields and wooded hillsides. The rolling hills vary from 200ft to 1000ft in altitude, serving you one challenge after another, with only the descents to provide some rest, and no flat riding in sight. The scenic beauty will leave you in awe but the hills will put a sting in your legs.
Relish in the climbing, descending and fun of cycling along impressive nature like Gifford Pinchot State Park and its Pinchot Lake, along the winding Conewago Creek, along the base of Roundtop Mountain, past rocky ridges and through majestic forests and river valleys. York County is the foothills spanning from New York to Alabama, the hills turn into mountains to the west and coastal flat to the east.
Long route riders repeat the loop a 2nd time before heading back to the finish line in downtown York, where the post-race festival awaits you.
