County and along the Susquehanna River. There will be a six mile, 15 mile, 30
mile and 54 mile route to accommodate riders of all levels. “Having avid
cyclists ride alongside individuals with special needs during the Harford Hills
Bike Adventure perfectly illustrates our mission and shows how the fabric of

Chesapeake Region development director Julie Chmura.
