Salisbury University gearing up for Sea Gull Century bike tour

SALISBURY, Md.- You could see upwards to 5,000 bicyclists hitting the Eastern Shore roads on October 8.

That’s because the nationally recognized bike tour, Sea Gull Century, is coming back. It will begin and end on Salisbury University’s campus. Cyclists can leave campus for two optional routes, which are a 100 mile and a 63 mile. There will be rest stops along the way and at the SU finish line there will be music and a big celebration. We’re told overall this event brings a lot to the area.

“The community effort in welcoming everybody from all states almost with our sea gull century registration,” Amy Waters, Deputy Director of the SU Foundation and Coordinator for Sea Gull Century, said. “Economically I mean it’s a big impact whether they are buying gas or refreshments or at the hotels; so the support in the community has been wonderful.”

Registration for the tour is still open, but there’s only about 200 spots left. So, if you’re interested in participating, head to the Sea Gull Century website.
