“Ride To See”
A Tour of Kent County Md
Saturday, August 9, 2014
Galena Lions Charities, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, welcomes cyclists to this year’s “Ride To See”. There are five routes prepared by active cyclists that span from between 15 and 100 miles in length. Each route is on paved roadways over flat to rolling trerrain. They were planned to provide safe travel through the scenery of the heartland of Kent County, Maryland.
Visit traditional and modern farms, historic towns, and great country stores. The 100 mile route offers scenic views of the Chesapeake Bay, historic homes, antique and gift shops and picturesque countryside.
There are many convenient rest stops providing water, gatorade, light - high energy snacks and friendly members of Galena Lions Club. Oh yes, all rest stops have convenient access to rest rooms or porta potty toilet facilities.
Join us for a grand tour of the smallest and arguably the most scenic county on the Eastern Shore of Maryland.
