Five road routes of 18 to 100 miles, AND a 50-mile gravel/road course. From the ride page:

The Delaware Valley Bicycle Club is pleased to offer our fully supported, highly acclaimed, Brandywine Valley Tour featuring covered bridges, picturesque villages, and amazing vistas! Enjoy any of seven gorgeous routes with 5+ rest stops serving varied menus including vegan/vegetarian and gluten-free options on request.


For the second year we are offering a combined road / gravel course. This scenic 50 mile ride with 10 miles of unpaved roads is best suited for gravel and cyclocross bikes or other bikes with 32mm or wider tires.


Our road courses are over low-traffic paved roads through the lush, rolling Chester County hills known for its thoroughbred horse farms and beautiful landscapes. Our longer routes venture into the horse and buggy farm areas of Lancaster County. Century riders will roll to a rest stop in the aptly named town of Paradise PA. History buffs will love the historic revolutionary war connection of the nearby Brandywine Battlefield Historic Site. Others will be charmed by beautifully shaded roads winding by the area's many creeks and streams. Just a few miles before your ride's end, cyclists on the 50 and 100-mile routes will roll into one of the region’s best “cow-to-cone” ice cream farms for a refreshing, free ice cream.

More info at the ride page, linked by the start location.
