SALISBURY, Md.- Salisbury University says that more than 7,000 cyclists are expected for the 24th annual Sea Gull Century bike ride on Saturday, Oct. 6.

The Sea Gull Century begins with a new show-and-go starting location on Wayne Street going toward Avery Road on the east side of the SU campus from 7-9 a.m. Riders finish by 6 p.m. on the Perdue Hall Lawn. 

Participants are coming from 47 states, the Virgin Islands, Canada, Alaska and Israel. They range in age from 9 to 86, and some are returning for the 24th year.

Sea Gull Century Wicomico County's largest one-day tourism event. SU's Perdue School of Business has estimated its annual economic impact on the Lower Shore at $2.5 million.

All proceeds from the ride support programs on campus and in the community, including student scholarships, the local chapter of Habitat for Humanity and other nonprofits and civic groups.
