McDermott 3-State Tour 2019

Our annual fundraiser ride which allows us to provide bikes and cycling instruction to at-risk youth was renamed in 2016 in remembrance of our member Micheal McDermott who played an integral role in the Major Force Youth Cycling Program.

Sunday, June 30 – 7:00am – 4:00pm


Ride Date: June 30, 2019.

The 2019 PMTCC McDermott 3-State Tour (M3ST) is in its 9th year. Our bicycle ride starts in Southwest Pennsylvania and after a spin around downtown Pittsburgh, heads west, entering into the states of West Virginia and Ohio. 

This is a scenic road ride with a few long hill climbs, rolling hills and some flat roads. 

This year we have three routes, a new 33 mile (3 rivers tour), 62 mile (metric century) and a new 100 mile century.

Rest stops and a full lunch (for the 62 & 100) will be provided along with SAG support and ride marshals on all routes.

The first 100 riders who pre-register for any of the three rides will receive a long-sleeve T-shirt.  Century finishers will receive a completion medal.


Online pre-registration costs for the McDermott 3-State Tour are as follows:

• 33-mile ride cost $45

• 62-mile metric century is $50 (Lunch voucher provided)

• 100-mile century is $50 (Lunch voucher provided)

• Day of the event registration is $60.
