The ride will begin at the Field House on the Penn College main campus in Williamsport and wind its way through the beautiful Northcentral Pennsylvania countryside. Riders may pre-register or register on the day of the ride.

The entrance fee includes free coffee and doughnuts during the morning registration; a free ox roast (additional meals can be purchased for $5 each); a free T-shirt (for entrants who pre-register by April 27); entertainment; route sheets; a dice run; and door prizes.

Judged competitions will be held for bikes and cars. Bike classes to be judged include Classic, Dresser, Cruiser, Trike (American and Foreign), Sport, and Rat.
