Ride for Clean Rivers set for Sept. 16
WYE MILLS — On Sunday, Sept. 16, ShoreRivers will host the 14th Annual Ride for Clean Rivers. Ride the beautiful back roads of Talbot and Queen Anne’s counties in support of ShoreRivers’ work for clean water. This is a great way to bring summer to a close surrounded by friends, family, and fellow community members. Register at rideforcleanrivers.org before Sept. 8 to receive discounted pricing and guarantee an event tee-shirt.
Cyclers of all ages and levels are welcome to register for 20-mile, 35-mile, or 63-mile (metric century) routes. All routes begin and end at Chesapeake College, and include SAG support and rest stops with food and drink. The metric ride will kickoff at 8 a.m. and the 35-mile and 20-mile rides will follow at 10 a.m. Upon returning to the college campus, riders and volunteers will enjoy a BBQ lunch and live music by Fog After Midnight. For the first time, every rider will be entered into a raffle to win a Garmin Edge 1030 cycling computer. A second cycling computer will be awarded to the team that raises the most money.
ShoreRivers looks forward to continued support from the community for this year’s event.
