The Wild Goose Chase, a bicycle weekend for women, is based in Cambridge on Maryland’s scenic Eastern Shore, with all rides taking place 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 bicycle rides and kayak rentals on Saturday, September 12, with the original Wild Goose Chase bike ride on Sunday, September 13.
Blackwater Wildlife Refuge features flat roads, low to no traffic, and pristine salt marshes offering protection for migratory waterfowl. The area, once threatened by development, was the motivation for Georgena 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 2020 event will help the Friends of Blackwater continue to protect this critical habitat. Save the date and check the Friends of Blackwater website for more info.
