Let’s all take an outside break and BikeAround Downtown the weekend of October 24th and 25th. We have created a 7.8 mile course that starts and ends in ColorBurst Park in the new Merriweather District of Downtown, and moves along the paths in Downtown and Wilde Lake. Register today.

Why? Why not, but here are two good reasons:

  • Let’s get outside and enjoy the fantastic bike infrastructure with family (while maintaining social distance from others).
  • Think about how you can make biking a bigger part of the future of your work and leisure lifestyle and use it in place of your car.

Do we need to be asked twice these days to step away from our screens and get some fresh air, exercise, and a mental break?

Prizes: Of course we’ll have prizes. Winners will be selected at random via the registration list and from tagged posted pictures on social media. Details to come.

Don’t have a bike or still awaiting arrival of your bike from COVID-related bike shortage? Ride the course on a Howard County BikeShare bike. The Howard County Office of Transportation will be providing comp codes for Howard County BikeShare for the weekend.

Common sense: Wear a helmet. Wear a mask when near riders outside of your bubble. Follow the rules of the road, and be courteous to others. Plan ahead, portions of the route closes at dusk.

Register and let us know you are riding.
