The 5th Annual Tour de Chocolate Town, presented by Capital Blue Cross, will take place on Sunday, September 13, 2015. Register now!
The Tour de Chocolate Town bike tour takes cyclists through Hershey and neighboring towns to raise funds for Children’s Miracle Network at Penn State Hershey Children's Hospital. The Tour de Chocolate Town features four different bicycle routes that are designed to appeal to all riding levels. Choose from 4 courses: our beginner 17.5 mile, the intermediate 35 mile, or challenge yourself with the 65 or 100 mile century ride. All routes begin and end at Hersheypark Stadium and bring cyclists through Hersheypark near The Claw and head toward the Lightning Racer, passing several major rides including Fahrenheit, Tidal Force, Wildcat, and all of the Boardwalk attractions.
After exiting the Park near the Storm Runner roller coaster, all cyclists will pass the Milton S. Hershey’s High Point Mansion, Hershey’s Kisses shaped streetlights, and the Milton Hershey School before the four routes split.
Rest stops will be available throughout the courses, excluding the 17.5 mile course. All participants must be 14 years and older. A portion of the net proceeds benefit Children’s Miracle Network at Penn State Hershey Children's Hospital by purchasing state-of-art equipment and supporting vital programs. All dollars raised locally stay local. Throughout the route, look for our Miracle Children from the Children's Hospital as they cheer you on!
