GFNY announces Inaugural GFNY Maryland (USA)

December 6, 2022

Scheduled for October 1, 2023, Cambridge will host a “flat ‘n’ fast” GFNY race

/ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ – GFNY Maryland is the latest addition to the GFNY Global Endurance Sports Series, making it the fourth GFNY cycling race in the USA in 2023. Scheduled for October 1, 2023, riders compete on the flattest and likely fastest race of the GFNY circuit.

GFNY Maryland race week activities will take place in downtown Cambridge. Located on Maryland’s storied Eastern Shore, the downtown has a rich maritime tradition, including shipbuilding, sailing, fishing, crabbing, waterfowling and more.

GFNY Cambridge Maryland is the long awaited east coast fall race in driving distance to the mother race in New York City,” says GFNY President Lidia Fluhme.

But it obviously just as much if not more so will be the “home race” for the large crowd of GFNY fans in the DC metro area. GFNY Cambridge Maryland is ideal to close out the race season – and punch that qualifying ticket for the racer corral at any GFNY for the following 380 days – including the World Championship in NYC in May.”

The course goes through Dorchester County, a place of natural unspoiled beauty with waterways, marshlands, farm fields, woods and quaint small towns. The race will not only pass along the Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge, a 27,000- acre place of striking marshlands, bald eagles, great blue herons and more but also through the Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad National Historic Park.
