What is the Ride Across Maryland?

The Ride Across Maryland is a 150-mile motorcycle ride from Columbia, MD to Ocean City, MD that culminates in a weekend-long celebration of rider’s fundraising efforts.

Who can participate in the Ride Across Maryland?

Anyone can participate in the Ride Across Maryland- whether you ride your motorcycle 1 mile or 150, or simply join us in Ocean City, the more the merrier.

What are the fees associated with Ride Across Maryland

All riders and participants are responsible for a $30 registration fee and a fundraising minimum of $70, representative of the 70,000 young adults in the United States who will be diagnosed with Cancer this year.

Where does the money go?

All proceeds from the Ride Across Maryland fund vital programs at the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults, including a Ride Across Maryland scholarship that is awarded annually to a young adult impacted by a personal diagnosis with breast cancer, or the breast cancer diagnosis of a sibling or parent.

The Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults works to ensure young adults are not alone when facing cancer, that they have the resources necessary to effectively navigate their cancer journey — physically, emotionally, and beyond — and we raise awareness by creating opportunities and platforms for individuals and communities to join in the fight against cancer.

Will there be an escort over the Bay Bridge?

Escorts will be provided from The Mall in Columbia to the Chesapeake Bay Bridge

Can I join the ride if I don’t depart from The Mall in Columbia?

If you plan to ride to Ocean City with other riders as a group, it may be best to arrive at the Mall in Columbia together so you can park and ride together the whole route. In the alternative, your group may want to meet up at an assembly point after the escorted portion of the ride ends. We encourage you to designate a meeting site off the travelled road to minimize passing and maneuvering around other riders and vehicular traffic.

Is there a rain date for the Ride Across Maryland?

The Ride Across Maryland is a rain or shine event, which is a good thing, because there’s always something to do in Ocean City no matter the weather.

Will there be discounted rates available at the host hotel?

Please see the “Where to Stay” (link to page) page for information on discounts and room rates.

Someone gave me a check or cash donation, where do I send it?

Please send all donations to the Ulman Cancer Fund, Attn. Ride Across Maryland, 1215 E Fort Ave Suite 104, Baltimore, MD 21230.
