to Maryland’s Eastern Shore.
Altitude? Not really. But as one of the most popular cycling destinations on the entire eastern coastline with quiet roads and gorgeous farmland, there’s no surprise this made our list. Serving many major markets for long-weekend training, including Washington DC, Baltimore, Philadelphia and Richmond, all less than 2 hours away, this will be a very popular village location. With flat, fast country roads and the Chesapeake Bay’s beautiful rivers for saltwater swimming, it’s no surprise the Eastern Shore is home to two major long-course races now. This location will be a popular weekend warrior spot and a favorite across the First Bourn network of training villages.
