Hub City Bike Loop

The Challenge
Bike to each park along the bike route using our Bike map! You can find the map at our office located at Fairgrounds Park or download online at: http://www.hagerstownmd.org/255/Bicycling  

Why
Biking is a great way to get exercise, whether during your commute or out on the weekends. The average bike commuter loses 13 pounds during the first year. Cycling also helps fight hearth disease, obestity, and diabetes. Biking is also good for the environment; it has a minimal carbon footprint and helps to reduce traffic congestion, and air and noise pollution.
