Volunteers Needed for 2013 Columbia BikeAbout


Volunteers are needed for Columbia Association’s (CA) annual Columbia BikeAbout, a free event being held this year on Saturday, September 21, organized by CA and the Columbia Archives.

The volunteers will assist with traffic control, directions and registration, and they will act as guides along the 10-mile route. Flexible shifts are available between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 2 p.m. Training — and a free T-shirt — will be provided for those volunteering to help.

BikeAbout is a popular event that attracts several hundred riders each year. The route takes advantage of Columbia’s extensive path system and highlights Columbia’s historic and natural beauty. This year’s route, which will start and end at Lake Elkhorn, will take riders on a winding route through sections of Owen Brown and Kings Contrivance.

Features on the BikeAbout will include:

  • Street name origins

  • Atholton Shopping Center

  • Kings Contrivance restaurant

  • Iris Hill

  • Guilford Pratt Truss Bridge

For more information on volunteering, please email Columbia.Archives@ColumbiaAssociation.org  or call Jeannette Lichtenwalner at 410-715-6781. And to sign up to ride in this year’s BikeAbout, please go to BikeAbout.Eventbrite.com.
