  • 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
  • Matapeake State Park Overflow Parking across the Bay Bridge


Registration is closed

New date because of recent weather.

New meeting location at Matapeake State Park Overflow Parking on Marine Academy Drive.

Time for some more variety on Kent Island. Bring your inner pirate and cover the island looking for lost treasure. You'll cycle past airports, lots of waterfront and marinas, a fishing pier, and nice smooth wide shoulders and the South Island Trail paved trail option.

13-14 MPH - 14 mile paved trail route from from Matapeake State Park to Romancoke Pier and you can ride longer or faster if you want to. John Tyrrell will be the ride leader of this trail ride (can't ride on the road yet).

Longer route option and can extend even more miles.

Stay for a social afterwards at the place of your choosing. BYO in case you want to refresh right when you get back. Send in lots of pictures and please save the ride in Strava as "ABC Pirate Ride".

Anticipated speed over this flat course will be 14-17+ MPH. We can divide up into a couple of speed groups so all members are welcome. Get in at least 20 miles, and sell off Queen Anne County in ABC's Tour of MD Challenge !

This is a popular Club route. Impossible to get lost. Study the course and you can either extend the miles or take some short cuts to get back early.

If you need anything, Kent Island Bike Doctor is near the starting location.
