SALISBURY, Md. - On Saturday, October 5, more than 7,000 cyclists are expected to make a 100 mile trek across the Lower Eastern Shore for Salisbury University's 25th Sea Gull Century Bike Ride.
Friday, there's a free welcome reception on the University's lawn from 5 - 8 p.m. On Saturday, the ride begins at 7 a.m. on Bateman and South Division Street and ends at 6 p.m.
All proceeds from the -- support programs on campus and in the community. Registration is open until 7 p.m. Friday night. It's just $90 to ride.
"We have seven rest stops that supply food, hydration is going to be extremely important for this weather. And we also have bands, so there's music to sit and listen. And then there's food, replenishment as well as bike services," coordinator Amy Waters said.
We're told the government shutdown won't have an impact on this weekend's ride.There may be a bit of re-routing, but otherwise everything is ready to go. For more information, go to www.seagullcentury.org.
