The River Towns Ride & Festival is a one-day event that is a joint festival held between the two historic Delaware waterfront towns of New Castle and Delaware City on Saturday September 16th at 11:30 AM – 5:00 PM.

The two towns are 10 miles apart and connected by the bike-friendly corridor of Route 9. Therefore, the event features a bicycling component that will have riders cycling between the two destinations. Professional and amateur cyclists are participating in the River Towns Time Trial for cash and prizes. The Time Trial is also Race #5 on the Mid-Atlantic Time Trial Series (MATTS) and will serve as the Delaware Time Trial State Championship.
