Bike Adventure unveils new ride: Weeklong Dirt to D.C. begins September 2017 in Pittsburgh

2017 was already shaping up to be the biggest year of the Fuller Center Bicycle Adventure ever. Now, considering this morning’s announcement of a new ride, it definitely will be!

Alongside three different summer routes, a spring ride down the Natchez Trace, and a weekend Silver Comet ride, the Bike Adventure is excited to announce an entirely new ride: Dirt to D.C.!

Dirt to D.C. (September 16 – 24, 2017) is a unique ride in many ways — primarily in that it will take place on unpaved roads. The weeklong ride will follow the Great Allegheny Passage and the Chesapeake and Ohio Towpath from Pittsburgh, Pa., to Washington D.C.

The 2016 Bike Adventure year set fundraising and participation records, raising $300,000 for the first time, as well as prompting a split into two rides to accommodate growing interest.

2017 will be the 10th year of the Bike Adventure, with a fundraising goal of $400,000. Help us raise our two-millionth dollar by participating as a cyclist, or donating to the cause!
