Itinerary:
Break out the bikes, pump up those tires and grease your gears! The BWI Trail is a dedicated bike path around BWI airport offering a pleasant, 12.5 mile loop on paved asphalt. The rolling terrain runs through open field, woods, wetlands and of course offers views of the BWI airport. The trail is suitable for any type of road, mountain and hybrid bicycle in good working condition. We estimate a pace of approx 10-12mph. There are no facilities for food, water or toilets on the trail. Helmets are mandatory-no helmet no ride.

We will meet at 6:00pm in the Dixon Observation area parking lot at Friendship Park and pick up the trail right at the parking lot..

This event is great for the members who are preparing for Tri-Athlons or other such events.

This event will run every Tuesday, same time and place thru the end of Oct.
There will be no organized carpool for this event but participants are encouraged to make arrangements to share a ride due to possible limited parking.
