2021 Event Information
Riding Closer Together Again – for Cerebral Palsy Research
Great news for all -- the 20th Annual Pedal with Pete Columbus Event will be held this year, with just a few changes for everyone’s safety. On Saturday July 31st (the weekend before Pelotonia) we’ll return to a one-day cycling event with marked routes, rest/food stops and SAG (support and gear) service.
NEW this year - the ride begins at Marysville High School (800 Amrine Mill Road, Marysville 43040). Seven routes (8, 20, 36, 53, 62, 74 and 100 miles) will reveal a great deal of new territory to Pedal with Pete riders. All routes 36 miles and longer will visit our familiar Milford Center rest stop serving pre-packaged sandwiches, snacks, fruit and drinks. The family and beginner oriented 8-mile route stays entirely on trails through lush parklands adjacent to the high school. The 74- and 100-mile routes will take a scenic route to Mechanicsburg (unveiled with last year’s self-guided rides) where there will be an added rest/food stop at Goshen Park. 100 milers exploring beyond Mechanicsburg will be rewarded with an extra dose of magnificent rolling to hilly terrain.
Route maps and GPS coordinates will be available on the STRIDE site in June.
Riders will begin their rides between 6:00AM and 11:00AM. Ride times will be staggered and you will sign up for a starting time when you register.
To participate in this event, simply click on the REGISTER button on this website.
If you register as a team, you’ll have access to all the team features allowing you to email other members of the team, post team stories, and post team photos and videos.
There will be signs posted along all of the routes. We hope that you’ll take photos by these signs and post them to your team site on STRIDE (or email them to us, or post them to social media with the hashtag #pwp2021) so that we’ll have a lasting photo record of the event for this very memorable 20th year.
*Helmets required for all riders*. For your own safety and the safety of others, riders are not allowed to wear any form of earbuds or headphones. As this is a fun ride and not a race, participants are required to obey all traffic laws. Traffic will not be detoured, stopped or slowed for this event.
On behalf of all of the volunteers at the Pedal with Pete Foundation, and the cerebral palsy community, we want to thank you for your continuing support. We hope that you will be able to join us again this year. Be assured that everyone’s health and safety is our overriding concern as we continue our planning for this year’s three-week event. Stay healthy!
