Civil War Century (102 miles) -- Our most popular but very challenging route visits all three Civil War battlefields offering breathtaking mountain vistas along the way. This hilly ride has about 6,775 feet of climbing with four mountain climbs and lots of up and down in between. This is a difficult ride. You must commit to training for this event. It should not be your first century. But, if you do get tired, you can bail out at 65 miles, skipping Gettysburg (and the last mountain climb) in favor of a scenic nine-mile descent back to the start/finish. View Civil War Century Map

Gettysburg Three-quarter Century (75 miles) -- This route is for those who want a more challenging ride to Gettysburg, but who don't want to tackle the full century. With about 4,994 feet of climbing, you'll scale three mountains en route to the battlefield. If you get tired, don't worry -- you can avoid the last big climb and bail out at the 37 miles, cruising nine miles mostly downhill back to the start/finish. View Gettysburg Three-quarter Century Map

Gettysburg Metric Century (64 miles) -- On this ride you get to look at the mountains, not climb them, as you meander along pleasant country roads through the lush rolling farmland of the Monocacy and Carroll Valleys to Gettysburg and back. As a bonus, you'll cross 4 covered bridges on this route while doing 2,479 feet of climbingView Gettysburg Metric Century Map

Gettysburg Half Century (51 miles) -- This ride takes a rolling route to Gettysburg, but there are some hills after leaving Emmitsburg. You'll be riding along most of the same pleasant country roads as the Metric Century while doing 1,975 feet of climbing and crossing two covered bridges. View Gettysburg Half Century Map

Covered Bridge Quarter Century (25 miles) -- On this rolling ride of 994 feet of climbing you won't visit any battlefields, but you will get to cross three covered bridges that were used repeatedly by the troops of both sides in the Civil War. View Quarter Century Map
