Maryland Cycling Classic set for debut on Labor Day weekend

Delayed for two years by the pandemic coronavirus, the Maryland Cycling Classic will make its debut on Labor Day weekend on a 120-mile course that begins in northern Baltimore County, just below the York County line, and ends in downtown Baltimore.

Organizers of the event, billed as America’s top-ranked professional road cycling race, and area political leaders convened Tuesday morning at the Columbus Center in Baltimore to outline the 120.4-mile route that will start at Kelly Benefits headquarters in Sparks, loop twice around Prettyboy Reservoir and finish at the Inner Harbor at East Pratt Street and Market Place.

Seventeen teams of seven riders – a group representing more than 25 countries – will compete in the Sept. 4 race that was originally scheduled to make its inaugural run in 2020 but was pushed back by concerns over COVID-19.
