Fun Runs, Bike Rides, & Fitness!

Learn about Fun Runs, Bike Rides and Fitness Opportunities on Trolley Trail Day

Did you know that from the Trolley Trail in Prince George's County, people can access major and locally owned amenities that can benefit your health and livelihood? Trolley Trail Day is a great day to engage, visit, explore and be introduced to the communities beyond the trail.

First, there are three major, locally owned bike shops within the vicinity of the Trolley Trail along the Route 1 Corridor. These community establishments play a big role here by being a place to visit, learn about trails, purchase cool bikes, accessories and swag, and they are huge communicators for people living, working and visiting. They know where the trails are and go, and all of them can provide quick fixes or major overhauls for your bicycles.
