Wild Goose Chase Women’s Bike Tour

September 7

The Wild Goose Chase, a bicycle weekend for women, is based in Cambridge on Maryland’s scenic Eastern Shore, with all rides taking pla ce in and around the spectacular Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge.

The Wild Goose Chase is more than a one-day ride (although that’s how it all started). It’s now a weekend bicycle festival with self-guided bicy cle rides and kayak rentals on Saturday, September 7, with the origi nal Wild Goose Chase bike ride on Sunday, September 8.

Blackwater Wildlife Refuge features flat roads, low to no traffic, and pristi ne salt marshes offering protection for migratory waterfowl. The ar ea, once threatened by development, was the motivation for Georg ena Terry (founder of Terry Bicycles for women) to start the Wild Goose Chase in 2008. Established as a fundraiser to help protect the refuge, the Wild Goose Chase has generated more than $150 ,000 for the Friends of Blackwater. Your participation in the 2019 event will help the Friends of Blackwater continue to pr otect this critical habitat. Save the date and check the Fri ends of Blackwater website for more info.
