The Great Outdoors
BikeSBY: BikeSby was established in 2012 by a group of like-minded friends to form the first bike lane network in Salisbury, MD. Since that time, we have come to adopt and implement not only bike lanes throughout our City, but a Bike Master Plan. We are investing in a Bike Share program and are committed to Salisbury’s bike-ability. Check out BikeSBY to learn more!
Eastern Shore Running Club: The Eastern Shore Running Club (ESRC) was founded in 1999 in Salisbury, Maryland, as a non-profit organization to promote running and walking as a means to a healthier lifestyle. A Road Runners Club of America member organization, ESRC promotes and builds the running community on the Shore through service and advocacy. The club provides finish line support services to several civic and nonprofit organizations. ESRC provides weekly, skill-level specific running outings. The details can be found here.
Naylor Mill Forest: Naylor Mill Forest Trails (formerly Naylor Mill Park) was established through funding from Maryland’s Program Open Space and the City of Salisbury.

Music and Art
We have such a creative and talented community; we like to showcase that talent every chance we get. Below are some of our local creative organizations!

Salisbury University Art Galleries: The mission of the Salisbury University Art Galleries and Collection is to enrich the cultural environment of Salisbury University, the city of Salisbury, and Maryland’s Eastern Shore by encouraging the appreciation and understanding of contemporary art and its role in society. Our purpose is to provide meaningful educational experiences and direct encounters with the visual arts not found anywhere else in the area. To sustain this mission we primarily offer exhibitions, performances, lectures, panel discussions, tours, and publications, as well as maintain the University Art Collection. Our programming is aimed at stimulating active learning about art and the creative process. In addition, building and maintaining the SU Art Collection serves as a tangible resource for teaching and research for this and future generations. https://suartgalleries.org
