The Wild Goose Chase is a bicycle weekend for women on Maryland’s Eastern Shore by the Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge sponsored by Terry Bicycles and Gore Bike Wear.
Georgena Terry, founder of Terry Bicycles, started the Wild Goose Chase in 2008 as a fundraiser for the Friends of Blackwater. The event has generated more than $115,000 for the organization and this year is on track to raise an additional $40,000.
Saturday’s events include self-guided bike tours, kayaking (through Blackwater Paddle and Pedal), the Terry/Gore Bike Wear tent sale, and dinner with Georgena Terry. The Wild Goose Chase, the main event, is on Sunday with four different rides: 16.2, 22.2, 42.8 and 66.5 miles. Registration is $60; dinner with Georgena Terry is $25. Make your motel reservations early (by Sept. 12; some motels are already booked up.)

Special note: The Wild Goose Chase is not an official Women Outdoors event, but some Women Outdoors Mid-Atlantic members will be riding in it. If you decide to sign up, send an email firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know so we can get together while we’re out there.
