French Creek Iron Tour - June 13, 2021.     (Virtual Option: June 5 - 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.  

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.     

 We anticipate offering a virtual ride in addition to the well-known, in-person Iron Tour with COVID precautions.  We will know more closer to June.  Information and registration at www.irontour.org
