Description: If you like bike rides and you enjoy going places for free, then come along with us on this Saturday morning excursion. First we’ll take-a-turn ringing the big bell outside of the Visitor’s Center to announce the opening of the Frederick Museums, and then we’ll cycle through Carroll Creek Linear Park as we head to some of Frederick’s most treasured historic sites. We’ll stop by the Schifferstadt Architectural museum; look in on the Frederick County History Museum, and spend a little more time at the National Museum of Civil War Medicine. Admission to every museum and historic site is free. Anyone who wants to ride, but doesn't have a bike is welcome to call The Bicycle Escape (301.663.0007) to reserve a rental. A full line of each size will be on hand (first come first served) at the Visitor’s Center on the day of the ride.
