Nearly 300 bicyclists came out on Sept. 21 to the 2013 Columbia BikeAbout. The route takes advantage of Columbia’s extensive path system and highlights Columbia’s historic and natural beauty. This year’s route started and ended at Lake Elkhorn, taking riders on a 10-mile winding route through sections of Owen Brown and Kings Contrivance (a shorter, easier route also was offered this year). Features on this year’s BikeAbout included street names origins, the Kings Contrivance restaurant, and the Guilford Pratt Truss Bridge, which is pictured above and connects Columbia and Savage.

BikeAbout is organized by the Columbia Archives, a service of Columbia Association (CA), which collects and preserves the history of Columbia. The public is welcome to visit and spend time researching to get a deeper understanding of the history of Columbia. For more information, go to or contact Archives staff at or 410-715-3103.
