Participants in the BikeAbout may begin the ride anytime between 9:30 and 10:30 a.m.
The Town Center
walking tour will begin at 10:30 a.m.
Rain forced cancellation of the event originally scheduled for May 14.
This year’s BikeAbout route will take riders through Town Center, Wilde Lake,
Harper’s Choice and Hickory Ridge, highlighting history in Harper’s Choice and
the Middle Patuxent Valley and traversing some of the most picturesque pathways
in Hobbit’s Glen and Clary’s Forest.
Walkers will follow a route to Oakland Mills, explore a historic cemetery and outdoor
sculpture as well as the art and architecture in Town Center.
BikeAbout, organized by CA’s Columbia Archives and Open Space Division is a popular
event drawing several hundred bicyclists annually. The route takes advantage of Columbia’s extensive pathways while uncovering the area’s historic and natural beauty.
Signage and guides at key stops make this not just another bike ride.
It is also a tour that helps area residents discover the history of where they live.
