PD BIke Ride 2013-260 MatteThe routes departed from Bryn Mawr Rehabilitation Hospital in Malvern, PA. Riders could choose from three different ride lengths, and as is typical of Chester County most the routes included some demanding hills! The riders looked good though and persevered the hills to complete their rides.
