This year will mark the 7th Anniversary of the Anne Arundel County Lifeline 100! What began as a way to showcase Anne Arundel County’s scenic trails and roadways, and spotlight cycling awareness, safety and its benefits, has grown every year into a celebrated annual event drawing hundreds of cyclists of all ages and abilities and supporters from around the Mid-Atlantic.
The Lifeline 100 Ride is put on each year by Anne Arundel Department of Recreation & Parks, Anne Arundel County Police and Bike AAA.
The organization behind Lifeline 100 is Bike AAA (Bicycle Advocates for Annapolis & Anne Arundel County). The organization advocates for safe biking and extended trail networks throughout Anne Arundel County. Jon Korin is the Chair of the Anne Arundel County Bicycle Advisory Commission as well as the President of the Bicycle Advocates for Annapolis & Anne Arundel County. We caught up with Jon along the B & A Trail to speak about this year's Lifeline Ride as well the extensive trail network throughout Anne Arundel County as part of June's Great Outdoors Month. The Lifeline 100 course begins at Kinder Farm Park and winds through scenic views of the Severn River and the Chesapeake Bay to historic Annapolis and into the serene countryside of South County.
There are approximately 29 miles of mountain biking trails between Bacon Ridge Trail and Waterworks Trail.
To date this fundraiser has secured over $200,000 for numerous non-profits. Watch the latest video to hear more from Jon and learn where you can register for this year's event. Be sure to like and follow their Facebook group to stay on top of future events.
