ST. MICHAELS — The Talbot Interfaith Shelter announced the second annual Shelter Century Fall Foliage Ride will be held at 8 a.m. Oct. 19. The event will feature three separate rides, an 11-mile family fun ride, a 31-mile fitness ride and a 62.5-mile metric century ride. Proceeds will benefit the Talbot Interfaith Shelter.
The fall foliage ride takes cyclists through five waterside villages in Talbot County, sharing the view with skipjacks, local watermen and sailboat races on the Miles River and the Chesapeake Bay. Starting and ending at the St. Michaels Elementary School, the Town of St. Michaels offers cyclists and their families shopping, dining and lodging. Rest stops will be available for all courses with light food, refreshments and restrooms provided.
All cyclists are treated with homemade pies of every kind at the end of the event, and cyclists on the 31-mile and 62.5-mile rides are invited to join TIS at St. Michaels Crab and Steak House for free beer and crab balls on the town’s waterfront afterward.
The Talbot Interfaith Shelter is dedicated both to providing safe, temporary shelter to men, women and children who lack adequate housing, and to raising awareness of the issues of homelessness in Talbot County. Fifteen faith communities rotate the homeless shelter through their church facilities during the cold weather months.
