Blackwater Wildlife Refuge - Maryland

Blackwater Wildlife Refuge – Dorchester County, Maryland

Travel Hags will join The Wild Goose Chase –  a bike ride for women of all ages and abilities on October 12, 2013 though the Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge. We’ll join hundreds of other women cyclists on a one-day bike ride through Blackwater and see one of the most stunning landscapes in Maryland.  Massive salt marshes, swamps, forests, endless water trails and wide open sky make Blackwater stand out almost like a landscape within itself.  Wildlife abounds – see bald eagles, foxes, deer and maybe even the Delmarva Fox Squirrel <–rare species.  These are flat roads with no traffic so biking is easy.  Don’t miss this one.

WHERE WE’LL MEET AND RIDE

We’ll meet Saturday morning at Cambridge at 10:00 for a late breakfast at BAY COUNTRY BAKERY in Cambridge – Google Map Link.  Then on to South Dorchester High School at noon to check in for the race.  There will be exhibitors there selling cycling gear and other stuff.  Then we’ll head out together be doing part of the Blackwater Century trail starting at the US Fish and Wildlife offices on Key Wallace Drive.  Then we’ll make a loop through Blackwater down Maple Dam drive – approximately 20 miles.   Here’s a map of where we will be riding.
