What is the Central PA Bicycling Trifecta?

Three great bicycle rides produced by three groups that are passionate about cycling.  For the first time, the Trifecta brings together the Penn State Chocolate Tour in Hershey, the Lancaster Bicycle Club’s Lancaster Covered Bridge Classic in Lancaster and the Harrisburg Bicycle Club’s Three Creek Century near Carlisle to form central Pennsylvania’s premiere cycling event.   Riders who complete all three events will earn a special prize.

What is the prize for participating in all three events?

Riders receive a beautiful commemorative glass beer mug. They also have the opportunity to purchase a special Trifecta jersey to wear in recognition of their accomplishment. The beer mug and jersey must be picked up at the Three Creek Century event.
