The Hagerstown-Washington County Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) has just released a new Bicycle Tours map and brochure for Washington County.
The new printed bike map and brochure now features the Maryland State Highway signed bicycle routes.
The entire project is also online at http://biketours.marylandmemories.org.
Tom Riford, president of the Hagerstown-Washington County Convention and Visitors Bureau, said that the bike map works hand-in-hand with the City of Hagerstown's new bike map and brochure, of which the CVB was the primary financial sponsor.
Trails.com rankings have shown that half of Maryland's 10 most popular trails are in or near Washington County. Thousands of cyclists explore Washington County annually, many who are escaping the confines of urban metro areas.
The tour routes were supplied by the Cumberland Valley Cycling Club (CVCC), which provided the support and guidance to the CVB throughout the entire process of designing the brochure.
The CVCC is a recreational and racing bicycle club that has been based in Hagerstown since 1983. The organization's website is: www.bikecvcc.com.
