More About 3M Bike Challenge, race a locomotive!
A timed challenge between cyclists and the train locomotive organized by Mountain Maryland Trails, the 3M Challenge will follow a 15.3 mile stretch of the Great Allegheny Passage alongside the WMSR railroad tracks, from Cumberland to Frostburg. Teams of up to six riders per team or individuals can enter the challenge, and funds raised will support maintenance and development projects on the Maryland portion of the Great Allegheny Passage as well as new trail development opportunities. This year, a new non-competitive category is available for class 1, pedal-assist e-bikes eager to take on the challenge.
September 10, 2022. Riders will depart from the Western Maryland Railway Station every 10 minutes, starting at 8:00 am. The train will depart from the station at 11:30 am and will be timed. Teams are challenged to have a better climb time than the train. Teams and individuals who beat the train’s time will receive a prize, and all participants will receive a souvenir gift.
