2019 DoubleCross – June 29th

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 62 total miles (metric century) over flat terrain. In addition to the traditional metric century route, we offer shorter 31 mile loops for those who would like a shorter ride.

The metric century ride is laid out on a figure eight pattern, beginning and ending at Smyrna High School, Smyrna Delaware.  We first go east to Woodland Beach on the Delaware Bay, Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge, and a return through the fishing town of Leipsic, DE. Return to Smyrna to complete a 31 mile ride, or enjoy a rest stop before heading west on the second 31 mile loop taking you to Millington Wildlife Demonstration Area and the Blackiston Wildlife Area.

All routes will be marked and SAG supported.  Cue sheets will be available at Registration.  GPS-type files (and cue in PDF) will be made available to pre-registrants.
