Millennium Trail is 10 Years Old, and We'll Have Cake to Celebrate

Rockville, Maryland, Sept. 1 — Join the Rockville Bicycle Advisory Committee (RBAC) on Saturday, Sept. 10 for a group ride on the Carl Henn Millennium Trail, a signed, 10-foot-wide, shared-use path that runs in a 10.6-mile loop around Rockville.

Afterwards, RBAC will celebrate the 10th anniversary of Rockville’s bike beltway with a potluck picnic. RBAC will supply the cake; bicyclists are invited to bring a dish, snacks and beverages to share.

Riders will learn about the history and development of the trail, which was constructed in 2000, and Carl Henn, the man it was later named after. Henn was a longtime Rockville resident, community activist, environmental advocate and avid bicyclist. He died in July 2010 after being struck by lightning during a powerful storm. He was 48.

The Millennium Trail, named as it was in bright hopes for the new century, was renamed in 2011 to honor Henn’s quiet, effective leadership.

Note: Riders must be at least 15 and helmets are required. Registration is free, but please RSVP and fill out a waiver at mberg@rockvillemd.gov
