Join the C&O Canal Assoc. for their first Douglas Bike Ride. Noon start, this a leisurely ride along the towpath near Shepherdstown, WV with several stops to hear about local canal history along the way. This ride is suitable for cyclists of all ages who are in decent physical condition (including e-bikes). We plan to average around 10 mph. Bring your helmet, water bottle, and bicycle bell (if you have one). If there is active rain, we will cancel.

Starting point is the Canal Road paved parking lot by the railroad bridge at mile marker 72.4. We plan on riding to Taylor’s Landing, also known as Mercersville, and back (17 miles). There is an optional dinner afterwards in Shepherdstown beginning at 4pm. Details and registration here:
