Chesapeake Cycling Club (C3) the premiere regional, adult bike club located on Maryland’s Eastern Shore will be holding its major Spring 2023 cycling event, The Tri-County Classic, on April 29, 2023. The event will begin at the Talbot County Community Center, 10028 Ocean Gateway Easton, MD. Riders can choose from the following distances: 100 or 65.7 or 39.2 or 23 miles. For more information and to sign up early please visit our website
According to Eric Griffieon, C3 Executive Director, “we encourage everyone to join us for our big Spring 2023 Tri-County Classic. Pick your distance, ride with friends and enjoy a beautiful day outdoors.”
C3 develops its own major cycling events, like The Tri-County Classic, and enters a C3 team in other regional cycling events such as the Shore Rivers Ride for Clean Rivers, among others, and offers weekly, multiple cadence and distance ride options for people who just love road cycling. Riders usually are segmented into three categories: “A” (distances of 25+ miles at avg. 19+ mph), “B” (distances of 25+ miles at avg. 16-18 mph), and “C” (distances of 20+ miles at avg. 12-15 mph). Cycling is a terrific, low-impact, sport, which will keep you fit and healthy. It is also a great way to learn about the community through cycling and meet new and active people with similar interests. C3 is not all about pedaling and we regularly hold social events to get to know one another better.

Add to this ride a ferry boat ride, food and a beer afterwards, while listening to an awesome band…it’s no wonder that it’s ‘Classic’!

Before I register to ride in the Tri-County Classic on 4/29, is that ride “friendly” to e-bike participants. I ride both a Trek FXS-5 (traditional) and FLX Babymaker (e-bike), and make my decision which one to ride “the day of” based on how I’m feeling — I’m upper 60s with back and hip issues. I want to make sure that if I register and show up with both bikes, that I’m not going to encounter any issues at check-in if I choose to ride the e-bike. Sorry if this is a silly question but I’m coming from out of state and some cycling clubs can be “purists” at times.
