Maryland Cycling Classic and UHCCF Bridges of Hope Ride to Return This September

BALTIMORE, MD – The Maryland Cycling Classic is returning for a second year this Labor Day weekend! Kelly Benefits’ Headquarters will be the official start of the 124-mile race on Sunday, September 3rd which will take international teams of professional cyclists racing through picturesque Baltimore County before looping through the city and ending at the Inner Harbor in downtown Baltimore.

Last year over 70,000 spectators and viewers from around the world watched the race unfold and this year the plans are to take the event to new heights.  “We have a saying at Kelly Benefits: We’re in the business of better. I like it because the truth is, even when things are good, they can always be better. I like to say better never stops, and it’s our goal and hope to do it better than we did it last year, which was an amazing success.” Shared John Kelly, Chief Innovation & Strategy Officer at Kelly Benefits and Event Chairman.

The only road race of its kind in the United States sanctioned by the Union Cycliste Internationale, the event will once again showcase Baltimore County, the city of Baltimore and the whole State of Maryland to the world. Festivities for the weekend include a community engagement day with school visits and educational opportunities for bike and helmet safety and Bike Jam on September 1st. On September 2nd, the Bridges of Hope Ride, presented by Kelly Benefits, will allow cycling enthusiasts to ride sections of the Maryland Cycling Course while raising money for a great cause.
