Renewable Energy Bike Ride Supports Local Organizations

August 17th, 2016 by WCBC Radio

Enjoy the vistas of the Great Allegheny Passage and help raise funds for two worthwhile causes during the inaugural Mountain Maryland Renewable Energy Bike Ride on Saturday, September 24.

Riders can choose a challenging 35-mile ride that begins at the Frostburg trailhead, crosses the Mason-Dixon Line and the Continental Divide, travels through the Big Savage Tunnel to the Deal trailhead and then winds through country roads along renewable energy projects back through Frostburg State University.  A 14-mile fun ride suitable for families also begins at the Frostburg trailhead, goes to the Big Savage Tunnel and circles back to Frostburg.  The 35-mile run begins at 9 a.m. and the fun ride starts at 11:00 a.m.  Snacks and drinks will be provided along both routes.

    All participants can enjoy a post-ride party at the Frostburg Train Depot featuring food from Shift, a farm to table eatery.  Music will be provided by the Chinese Bandits.

Proceeds from the ride benefit the Allegany County Habitat for Humanity and the Mountain Maryland Renewable Energy Ride scholarship at Frostburg State University. 

This event is dedicated to the memory of Will Jenkins and Breandan McFawn in recognition of their support in establishing renewable energy sources in Western Maryland.
