Join us for this weekly after-work ramble through Rockville. On June 10th we'll ride a fun 10-mile loop and visit 10 charming and unique city parks.
Every Tuesday at 6:30 pm during the months of June, July, and August, the Rockville Bike Advisory Committee hosts an after-work ride starting from the King Farm neighborhood. The routes vary each week, but the rides are always casual with distances ranging from about 8 to 12 miles. We typically finish before sunset.
On Tue, June 10, we'll journey about 10 miles along shared-use paths and bike-friendly streets as we pass through 10 bucolic city parks, including one dedicated to the late poet and peace activist Mattie Stepanek (shown below).
The ride starts at the King Farm Farmstead Park (click the location link at the top of this meetup page for a Google map/directions). We'll ramble through the neighborhood, hop on the Carl Henn Millennium Trail, and head through town center in our quest for scenic local parks. We'll view eclectic public art and historic landmarks as we cruise along meandering bike paths, over bridges, through hidden tunnels, and past picturesque streams and ponds.
Below is a map of the anticipated route, including a list of the parks we'll see:
