The official opening is at 9 AM. Riders will be able to leave anytime between 9 and 10 AM. This free event highlights the history of Columbia and its beautiful open space with a 12-mile, well-marked route allowing bicyclists of all ages and abilities to enjoy a self-paced ride.
This year’s route will take riders through Town Center, Hickory Ridge, Harper’s Choice, Wilde Lake and Town Center finding history and other places of interest along the way. There will be opportunities to learn more about Athol, one of Howard County’s oldest homes, and Locust United Methodist Church, whose history reaches back to 1869, as well as more recent history such as the sculpture at The Greens Apartments and the amazing number of bird species at Wilde Lake as captured in the photographs of Michael Oberman.
