June 13, 2021 9:00am to 5:00pm
The French and Pickering Creeks Conservation Trust in Chester County will hold both an in-person and virtual French Creek Iron Tour Cycling for Open Space and Trails event in June.
The virtual event will be held June 5 -13 and the in-person event on June 13.
Join over 1,000 riders for scenic cycling through Iron Furnace country and have a blast! With seven road courses ranging from 11 to 100 miles and even a Gravel Grinder, there’s a ride for everyone!
Introduced in 2019, the 70-mile Gravel Grinder includes the most scenic gravel roads and trails in the area.
The French & Pickering Creeks Conservation Trust preserves, protects and connects people to the land in northern Chester County where iron blast furnaces and forges served as cornerstones of industry in colonial Pennsylvania – hence, “Iron Tour”.
When you ride in the Iron Tour, you have a direct impact on the preservation of the pristine countryside that surrounds you. Since 1967, French & Pickering has protected over 13,000 acres in northern Chester County.
