Kent County Maryland has long been known as a haven for bicyclists. Mile after mile of flat and scenic roads, low traffic density, and our proximity to water all add up to one heck of a destination for a cycling vacation.Photo by Leyla Dilmen via Wiki Commons
The Brampton Inn has been hosting guided cycling vacations for years now. Folks get together and go on an extended, multi-night, multi-city bike ride, staying at different inns along the way. But what if you just want to take a short visit and get in a little cycling here or there? We’ve got an app for that. Er, uh, I guess I mean we’ve got a package for that… It’s BYOB: Bring Your Own Bike. For some strange reason, renting a bike in Chestertown is not the easiest thing to accomplish. We figure, if you’re into cycling, you’ve probably got your own ride, so just bring it along. We’ll provide you with maps, a packed lunch, and inside information on the best picnic spots, like this one:Thanks to Tom Hillegass at SwimmingHoles.org for this photo!
Betterton Beach is about a 20 mile bike ride from the inn. Just imagine taking that ride, taking a dip, and then enjoying a picnic lunch, and maybe a snooze in the shade (yes, a beach with shade trees – how wonderful!) before heading back to the Brampton for a good, long soak. We’ve got other destinations and secret spots to share, all just waiting for you here in the Land of Pleasant Living!!
