On Sunday, October 14th, BCYC All Stars and coaches woke up with the sun and trekked up to Tinicum Park in Bucks County for the annual Covered Bridges Ride.
The ride is put on by Central Bucks Bicycle Club, a longtime supporter of BCYC. Youth athletes look forward to it every year as an opportunity to get in some base miles and spend a beautiful fall day along the Delaware River:
“The Covered Bridges ride is a great opportunity to see different areas of Bucks County with lots of wide open scenery and also is an opportunity to meet some interesting new people” -Devante Bivens, Race team athlete
“It’s an exhilarating, slightly cold experience that will leave you satisfied” – Junius Jones, All Star
This weekend the Race team conquered the 63 mile hill route with ~3,800 feet of climbing, and the rest of the All Stars remixed (maybe slightly accidentally) the 34 mile flat route to include a nice long climb with a fast fun descent at the end.
