Ride for Clean Rivers
September 18 @ 8:00 am - 1:30 pm
Plan to pedal with ShoreRivers on Sunday, September 18, at the 18th annual Ride for Clean Rivers at Chesapeake College. Cyclists will enjoy the beautiful back roads of Talbot and Queen Anne’s counties in support of ShoreRivers’ work for clean waterways. Register at shorerivers.org/events.
Bike riders of all ages and levels are welcome to register for 20-mile, 35-mile, or 62-mile (metric century) routes. All routes begin and end at Chesapeake College and include tech support from Bike Doctor Kent Island, SAG support from Queen Anne’s County Amateur Radio Club, as well as rest stops with food and drink from Sprout. The metric ride will kick off at 8:00 am and the 35-mile and 20-mile send-offs will follow at 9:00 am and 10:00 am respectively. Upon returning to the college campus, riders and volunteers will enjoy a boxed lunch from Sprout and beer from Ten Eyck Brewery. Participants are also encouraged to join teams and create their own fundraising pages to boost support for their ride from others.
While on campus, plan to tour the extensive wetland restoration project on the west end of campus adjacent to Route 50. ShoreRivers has designed and installed multiple pollution-reducing practices on campus with support from the Department of Natural Resources Trust Fund.
