Cycle Maryland Kick-Off Event

Jun 17, 2011 04:47PM ● By Anonymous
The site is located just over the Chesapeake Bay Bridge, right off of Route 50 on the waterfront along Kent Narrows on Kent Island. It also is the home of the Queen Anne County’s Tourism Office & Visitor Center.

Carol Silldorff, Bike Maryland Executive Director, will introduce the Governor and honor him with an award for his Bike Friendly Maryland initiatives and legislation. The Kick-Off event will include a 10- to 12-mile bike ride along the Cross Island Trail on Kent Island following the announcement. For those who have worked up an appetite, you may choose from a number of longer trails.

The purpose of this new initiative is to promote cycling throughout Maryland. Cycle Maryland is a great way to get Marylanders out to connect with each other, their communities and all the wonderful amenities our State has to offer. Cycle Maryland is promoting a series of bicycling events across the state this summer and fall. The Kick-Off event is one of seven across the State from now through October. The final event is Bike Maryland's Tour du Port - please save the date and register here.

Please check out the Cycle Maryland website with interactive bike map: (website to go live later this week).
