West Chester Double Scoop

CYCLE PHILADELPHIA, ROAD RIDE, WEST CHESTER DOUBLE SCOOP The West Chester Double Scoop is a scenic rides and hilly bike ride. You are in for an ultra-satisfying 23 mile loop – excellent roads, a stunning backdrop, even the air smells differently out here! You’ll start out at West Chester Scoops and pedal straight out of West Chester. There are some weird intersections that feel like they should be four way stops, but are not. Use caution as you make your way out of town. The roads open up as soon as you hit North Creek Road. There are considerable hills at mile 1, 3.4, and mile 5, so throw your low gear and put your head down; you’ll enjoy the downhills that follow. The roads are quiet and scenic through Maple Ridge, Lenape, and Indian Hannah. Some could use a good pave, and some are a touch narrow, but on the whole these are near perfect cycling roads. Heading back into West Chester, you’ll travel along PA Bicycle Route L again, and then slowly watch the rural roads change to residential. After Finegan Drive, you’ll be in a development – not much traffic but a lot of fast turns before you hit Sconneltown Road. The turn onto Price is quick, so be sure to watch for it, especially if you’re tired and ready for ice cream. FOOD AND DRINK Downtown West Chester will be your best bet. It might be a good idea to grab a snack for the route! There are a few stops along the way, but for the most part, you’ll be happy to have that soft pretzel in your bag. ACCESS Take Route 202 West towards West Chester. There is street parking all around West Chester Scoops, and Septa buses 92, 104, and 306 will bring you to the area.
