Kent County Spring Fling

The 2019 Kent County Spring Fling will take place May 24-27 in Chestertown, Maryland.

The roads are low-traffic with wide shoulders and very gentle terrain.  This is the 37th year for our event.  In its heyday, the KCSF would attract 50-75 tandems.

It is a wonderful event for the whole family and lots of fun—with the Chestertown Tea Party—even if one didn’t ride.  We stay and dine at historic Washington College.
