Salisbury JC's Host 8th Annual Soft Shell Metric Bike Ride - WBOC TV 16
Cyclists on the 23.1-mile route will tour the wooded areas of Crisfield and Marion Station, while those braving the full 62.1-mile route will have the opportunity to see some of the county's most historic churches as they travel north to Rehobeth, MD, before returning to Crisfield, the southernmost point in Maryland.
The Jaycees provide rest stops along the way, featuring water, snacks and opportunities for riders to relax and socialize. After the ride, cyclists may visit popular local attractions such as Janes Island State Park or enjoy traditional Chesapeake Bay seafood dishes at one of several Crisfield restaurants.
Those spending the night will have the opportunity to mingle with the locals at the annual Soft Shell Spring Fair and Watermen's Hall of Fame induction at the Crisfield City Dock on Sunday, May 24, sponsored by the Crisfield Lioness/Lions Club and Crisfield Area Chamber of Commerce.
