The Arc Northern Chesapeake Region, a non-profit that helps people with intellectual and developmental disabilities build better lives, will host its second annual Harford Hills Bike Adventure on Saturday, April 26, 2014. The scenic ride will feature several courses of varying distances winding through Havre de Grace and along the Susquehanna River.
The event builds on the success of last year’s inaugural Harford Hills Bike Adventure, which drew 30 participants and raised more than $4,000. “Having avid cyclists ride alongside individuals with special needs during last year’s Harford Hills Bike Adventure perfectly illustrates our mission and shows how the fabric of our community is strengthened when we all work together,” says The Arc Northern Chesapeake Region development director Julie Chmura.
The ride will begin and end at the historic Steppingstone Farm Museum in Havre de Grace, Maryland and loop through the scenic vistas of Harford County and along the Susquehanna River. To accommodate all riders, participants can choose between a 54, 30, 15 or six mile route. All routes are subject to Harford County approval. The starting time for the Harford Hills Bike Adventure is at 8:00 a.m. and all riders are required to wear helmets.
Early registration is $35 per rider and will increase to $45 on March 8, 2014. All registered riders will receive complementary food, drink, entertainment and an event shirt. Following the race, riders and spectators can enjoy an afternoon of music from the band Electric Molly. Food and drinks including beer will also be available to all to purchase. The Steppingstone Museum will remain open for visitors at no cost during the event. To register, visit www.Active.com or www.arcncr.org.
