Route


The Promise Ride will begin at South River High School, 201 Central Ave E, Edgewater, MD 21037 with breakfast. Each route—the 65 mile metric or the 34 mile recreational route—will travel along tree-lined country roads in southern Anne Arundel County and continue through Calvert County to enjoy beautiful water views as we ride along the western shore of the Chesapeake Bay. There is a new 10 mile route that travels through the quiet neighborhoods in Edgewater.

The routes will be fully supported with rest stops every 12-15 miles. The Ride will conclude back at South River High School with a picnic for riders and spectators.

Having enjoyed the waterside view, you will travel along the Bay through Fairhaven and onwards to your next stop in Tracy’s Landing. From there, blue highway takes to further North and then East for your final rest stop at Pirate’s Cove in Galesville on the shores of the West River before you make trek Northward along broad shouldered roads back to South River High School and the festivities that await you there.
