The annual Lifeline100 is hosted by a partnership of Anne Arundel County Police, Anne Arundel County Recreation & Parks and Bicycle Advocates for Annapolis & Anne Arundel County (“BikeAAA”, a 501c3 promoting safe cycling). All proceeds go to Anne Arundel county non-profits as described further below.
Here’s what one happy cyclist wrote to us after the ride: “I had an awesome time at this ride. It was my first 100 miler and I was impressed start to finish with the organization, volunteer enthusiasm, support, rest stops, and everything else that made it such an excellent ride. See you next year!”
The Lifeline100 at Kinder Farm Park in Millersville, MD offers a unique organized ride experience for cyclists of all levels with scenic 100 and 65 mile routes on road and paved trail; and 30 and 15 mile routes on paved trail only.
The 30 and 65 mile routes also have some options to shorten or lengthen your ride depending on how you feel that day! The 100 and 65 mile routes wind throughout scenic Anne Arundel County including views of downtown Annapolis,historic State House, Severn River, Chesapeake Bay, rural southern Anne Arundel County, BWI/Marshall airport and more!
Children can learn bike safety at the free children’s Bike Rodeo hosted by BikeMD.
