The Apple Cider Century (ACC) is an annual one-day 15, 25, 37, 50, 62, 75 or 100 mile bicycle tour of the orchards, forests and wine country in and around Three Oaks, Michigan on the last Sunday in September. The ACC is a recreational and social tour for bicyclists. It is neither a race nor a test of stamina. It is intended that all participants ride the tour in a safe and intelligent manner.
Since 1974, it has become the Midwest's largest one-day century event with over 5,500 cyclists participating last year. The ACC is sponsored by the Three Oaks Spokes Bicycle Club. Monies raised are used to finance the Apple Cider Century Tour, the Backroads Bikeway trails, the Bicycle Museum housed at the Dewey Cannon Trading Company, the League of American Bicyclists, Rails to Trails, and to help fund community youth programs and other non-profit organization fund raising causes.
From September 1974 - 1979 the ACC tour was held within the Village of Three Oaks, located in Berrien County, Michigan, approximately 60 miles from Chicago and Kalamazoo. As our ride grew, we relocated 3 miles north to River Valley High School in 1980. After a 26 year hiatus, the ACC has returned to where it began. We‚Äôre proud of our town and look forward to having you as guests to enjoy all that we have to offer.
The weekend of the Apple Cider Century provides many interesting events Saturday and all-you-can-eat breakfast and spaghetti dinner on Sunday. Come celebrate 40 years of touring!
