The area between Southeast Baltimore and downtown is compact enough to bike around. With skinny streets and a lack of clear space for bicycles, it’s potentially even too compact. But some changes are coming that will provide space for two-wheeled commuters, according to Bikemore.

    catch of the day fish (2)Tour dem Parks, Hon! is the annual bike ride through Baltimore’s parks and neighborhoods that offers  a close-up view of regional parks like Carroll, Patterson, Herring Run & Druid Hill. In other words, it’s a great way to spend a gorgeous Sunday hitting some of Baltimore’s best green spaces. It’s perfect for avid cyclists and newbies alike. That’s because participants get to choose from 3 routes: 14 miles (the family ride on the Jones’ Falls Trail), 25 miles or 35 miles.  You get to ride at your own pace, and take in the sights on your own time. This is a bike ride that’s all about seeing– not about winning.

    To tween girls, he’s Haymitch from the Hunger Games movies; for Baby Boomers, he’s Woody from Cheers; for everyone else, he’s that guy from Natural Born Killers/The People vs. Larry Flynt/No Country for Old Men/Hollywood’s most prominent pro-marijuana activist. In other words, Woody Harrelson is a hard guy not to notice. But apparently the actor managed to bike his way through Baltimore this weekend without causing too much of a fuss.

    Here’s a conundrum: biking to work (or wherever else you have to go) is awesome, but sometimes bikes get stolen. I once had someone steal my beloved bike from in front of Penn Station, even though I’d used what I thought was a really tough lock.

    The city’s new Controlled Access Bicycle Parking might’ve solved that problem. The parking lot at 510 E. Lexington Street (between Saratoga & Gay Streets) now has a special room earmarked for bicycles. Lock your bike to the rack and rest easy knowing that there’s a garage manager on patrol, and that the room is accessible only to those with an access card.
