CAM­BRIDGE — Sen. Ad­die Eckardt, R-37-Mid-Shore, re­cently an­nounced she will be­gin her an­nual Tour De Mid-Shore by bi­cy­cle on Aug. 25.

The tour will con­sist of four days of cy­cling in the four coun­ties of the MidShore that make up Dis­trict 37B — Tal­bot County and parts of Caro­line, Dorch­ester and Wi­comico coun­ties. She will ride 50 miles per day.

This year’s ride will be ex­plor­ing “the other side of MD Route #50” with all routes start­ing and fin­ish­ing east of U.S. Route 50.

Eckardt will tour the four coun­ties to pro­mote their unique­ness, nat­u­ral re­sources, farm­land and wa­ter­ways, his­tory, cul­ture and tourism. There is no reg­is­tra­tion fee.

The first day starts in Wi­comico County with planned vis­its to the hy­dro­ponic let­tuce farm, Dou­ble Mills, River­ton, Sharp­town and San Domingo.

Day two starts and ends in Pre­ston with trips to Chop­tank, Tan­yard, Gaineys Wharf and ei­ther by the Al­paca farm or to the Sports com­plex to Fed­er­als­burg for a rest stop, then State tree farm, past Blades Or­chards and re­turn to the Pre­ston His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety.

Day three in Tal­bot County has a start and fin­ish at Triple Creek Win­ery and Vine­yards sched­uled.

The fi­nal will start and fin­ish at Sui­cide Bridge Restau­rant in Dorch­ester County with trips through Sec­re­tary, East New Mar­ket, Rhodes­dale, Brookview, El­do­rado and Galestown for a stop and then back over In­diantown Road to Hand­sell, Vi­enna and back to Sui­cide Bridge.

An avid biker and nurse, Eckardt ad­vo­cates for ex­er­cise as es­sen­tial to dis­ease pre­ven­tion and for weight con­trol. She be­lieves Dis­trict 37B is ideal for many out­door ac­tiv­i­ties, in­clud­ing cy­cling.

Eckardt is invit­ing peo­ple to join her for one or more days, or any part of the tour and re­lated events.
