14th Annual Skipjack Bike Tour

The Skipjack Bike Tour is a rolling start so once you are signed in feel free to “Hit the Road” and enjoy the beauty of Somerset County. The annual ride starts at Deal Island Harbor, home of the largest gathering of Skipjacks on the Chesapeake Bay. Enjoy a great day as you set out on a 15, 30, or 65 mile ride through the wildlife refuge, marshes, and backroads that wind along Deal Island Road (Rt. 363). Along the way you will find plenty of rest stops, our famous brownies, and Darlene’s fresh grilled hot dogs!!
