French Creek Iron Tour 2016For our 11th consecutive year, Naturescapes is proud to support the French and Pickering Creeks Conservation Trusts’ Annual Iron Tour Cycling for Open Space. This year’s ride will take place on Sunday, June 12, 2016.

Join over 1,400 riders for scenic cycling through northern Chester County and celebrate the 300th anniversary of the iron and steel industry which started in Pennsylvania.  No region in the nation can boast a longer history with, and connection to, the iron and steel industry. This part of America literally forged the nation. The French and Pickering Creeks Conservation Trust preserves open space where iron blast furnaces and forges served as cornerstones of industry in colonial Pennsylvania – hence “Iron Tour.” Since 1967, French & Pickering has protected nearly 12,000 acres of open space in northern Chester County.

Registration for the Iron Tour will close at 1800 riders or June 9, whichever comes first. You can register for the event and find more information here. There is no registration on the day of the event.

We hope to see you there!
