The St. Mary's Century to Benefit the Semper Fi Fund - September 28, 2013
Each year, hundreds of cyclists enjoy the quiet rural charm of St. Mary's County. Steeped in history and culture, Southern Maryland is laced with quiet country roads.

The St. Mary's Century is partnering with the Semper Fi Fund, a wonderful charity that provides support to injured Marines and their families. We have options for riders of various abilities. Choose a traditional full century (104 miles), 68 miles, 50 miles, or 25 miles. Routes are flat to rolling, with occasional hills. All rest stops have real bathrooms (no port-a-potties) and are sponsored by local restaurants.

The rest stops will be well-stocked with traditional items as well as local specialties. Whether you ride the entire 100 miles or the shorter routes, count on the hospitality and friendliness cyclists have experienced on each of our previous Amish Hundred rides. At the end of the ride enjoy the festivities and delicious food.

The rides start from Dennis Point Marina located at 46555 Dennis Point Road, Drayden MD, 20630. Registration and packet pickup is from 7:00-9:00 am and century riders are required to start no later then 9:00 am.

I would so like to do this ride. If only it was the next weekend.

Hope you can make it CC.

Unfortunately I'm committed to a non-biking event in Virgina.
I'd like to ride that area. My wife is a St Mary's alumni and I used to visit there often.

I'd highly recommend this ride (any distance is probably equally nice) to all area BFers. Rode the 104 and loved it. The course was fast and fun. Low traffic roads and/or very wide shoulders for the bulk of the ride. Rest stops friendly, well stocked, and the last two were spectacularly pretty.
Nice to have a meal waiting at the end too! Thanks to PaxVelo and all the hard working volunteers for making it happen. I'll definitely be back.

(Pro Tip: staying at the campground next to the start line makes for a casual morning.)

Ditto to Ferrous Bueller post! I have riden this event for the past five years and will continue to do so. It is well organized, staffed by friendly people and the ride as always is very pleasant. To my recollection it is normally held the last Saturday of September. It is never too early to start planning your rides for next year. See you there!

I've done it three times. Very nice ride. I needed to get some climbing in this weekend, so I skipped this year. A bit too flat for me, but it's an excellent "goal ride" for somebody who hasn't done any or very many centuries.

All times are GMT -6. The time now is 11:14 PM.
