**More Bike Parking! // Fadensonnen + Bikemore Fundraiser**

IMG_20130713_130405.jpg

Join Fadensonnen and Bikemore for a fundraiser to more bike racks to Old Goucher! With many new businesses in the area, the existing bike racks and signs are regularly full.

We know that people who bike and walk spend more money at local businesses, and creating a network of secure bike parking throughout the city encourages bike riding, making a safer and healthier Baltimore for everyone.

50% of proceeds from a select bar menu will go towards purchasing bike racks, and any additional proceeds will be donated to Bikemore.

Come grab a drink with the Fadensonnen and Bikemore teams, and support local businesses that support biking!

Baltimore Greenway 2019 Bike Ride

53502721_2116872408404394_3327941940288159744_o.jpg

From the organizers:

Presented by the AIA Baltimore Committee on the Environment and Resiliency (COTE |R), Urban Design Committee (UDC), and Rails to Trails.

Registration includes a complimentary Baltimore Greenway 2019 t-shirt. Funds raised will go to support Rails to Trails.

This year’s urban bike ride explores the Western and Southern loops of the Baltimore Greenways Trail Network and efforts led by Rails to Trails to create a world-class network of connected urban trails in Baltimore. AIA Baltimore has joined Rails to Trails as an advocacy partner in the effort to complete the 10 additional miles needed to close critical gaps through 50 neighborhoods and help reverse the urban fragmentation. Former rail lines, industrial coastlines and reconfigured roadways will be transformed from barriers in the built environment to community-based assets centered on trails. This will change the way Baltimore residents work, live and play—and generate myriad long-term impacts related to social equity, health, environmental conservation, active transportation and economic development.

This tour focuses on a mostly flat 11 mile stretch that includes the Western and Southern loops of the trail, and passes through the South Baltimore neighborhoods of Sharp-Leadenhall, Pigtown, Carroll Park, Westport, and then through Middle Branch Park with a view of the Patapsco and where the Hanover Street Bridge spans Cherry Hill to Port Covington. We’ll hear from Rails to Trails and community leaders about trail plans for the area. The natural waterfront areas along the Middle Branch—ecologically rich and home to some of the best waterfowl seeing—go largely unnoticed, hidden behind vestiges of industry and underneath highway interchanges. Better access by trails will help to strengthen the natural assets of Baltimore’s lesser known harbor.

The ride is about 10 miles and will begin and end at the Checkerspot Brewing Company. Parking is available in the lot under 395 that is directly across the street from Checkerspot on S. Sharp. Street. Stick around after the tour for drinks at Checkerspot!

In case of poor weather, the rain date will be Sunday, April 28, same time and location.

21st Annual Kinetic Sculpture Race

53609512_10157147027152138_349593969774034944_o.jpg

From the American Visionary Art Museum: a race through Baltimore of wacky, imaginative, totally human-powered works of art, designed to compete over land, a mud pit, and the Inner Harbor, constructed out of used bicycles, gears, and parts, created by a lunatic genius who tinkers around in the garage or backyard (do you know this person?)!

This year's theme is "Wheel-ality TV," inspired by our current mega-exhibit, PARENTING: An Art without a Manual.

Pilots ("Kinetinauts") compete for the most coveted GRAND MEDIOCRE EAST COAST CHAMPION AWARD (finishes right in the middle), and the highly prized NEXT TO THE LAST AWARD (finishes, well, next-to-last), and other serious trophies including ART, ENGINEERING, BEST BRIBES and more.

Race starts at 10am at the American Visionary Art Museum (arrive early to take part in Opening Ceremony and Blessing of De Feet).

Great spots to see the vehicles:
- 1st Checkpoint atop Federal Hill (around 10:15am)
- The Water Entry at the boat ramp at Canton Waterfront Park (around 11am)
- The not-so-quick-Sand Pit in Patterson Park (1:15-3pm)
- The uphill Mud Pit in Patterson Park (1:15-3pm)
- and, of course, anywhere along the 15-mile route through Baltimore!

Ride For The Feast 2019

52786746_10157114318392495_2878371233626324992_o.jpg

From the organizers:

Ride for the Feast 2019 is a 2-day, 140-mile Maryland fundraising bike ride from Ocean City to Baltimore City.

The Ride raises money for Moveable Feast www.mfeast.org, a longstanding Baltimore nonprofit organization that provides lifesaving, nutritious foods for low-income Marylanders living with HIV/AIDS, cancer, and other life-threatening conditions at no cost.

Serving 14 Maryland counties, in 2018, Moveable Feast delivered 743,940 life-saving meals to homes, shelters and drop-in centers, serving a total of 5,060 Marylanders.

We ride 140 miles because that is the exact distance a Moveable Feast driver must go to deliver to our farthest client. Over 200 riders and at least 100 volunteers sign up each year for this event.

The Ride, which began in 2003, has become one of the largest sources of funding for Moveable Feast. Riders and crew return year after year to be involved in this event because of the amazing people involved and for knowing they are making a difference in the lives of Moveable Feast's clients.

If you're interested in riding or volunteering for this event, register now at www.rideforthefeast.org. Questions? Contact Events Manager Carin Prescott at cprescott@mfeast.org.

**Baltimore Pump Track Vision Session**

f5de6f3d1b523e618796408efea0976a.jpg

South Baltimore Gateway Partnership and community leaders are exploring creative ways to temporarily use property in Westport for a community pump track — and we want to hear your ideas!

This intent is to create a space for all Baltimoreans, a space that's free to use and where neighbors can feel comfortable and safe biking without danger or harassment.

A pump track is a small looping trail system that you can ride without pedaling much, as you move with the momentum of going up and down the small hills and berms. They can be made of dirt and maintained by volunteers, and can be fun and challenging for a wide range of ages in a relatively small space.

Partners are just beginning the conversation around what a pump track in Westport would involve and look like, so come out to share your thoughts and ideas.

**Complete Streets Becomes Law**

IMG_0292.jpg

Our Complete Streets Bill is going to become the LAW! After two years of working with Councilman Ryan Dorsey and a coalition of local and national partners, tomorrow it becomes law that Baltimore City road projects must prioritize the safety of all people using the streets over the speed of moving cars.

While there is still a lot of work to be done to ensure implementation is effective, this is big. Thank you for helping us get this far! Come by City Hall to celebrate and show your support!

Bikemore & Jubilee Arts has been engaging with neighbors and artists working to bring public art to the neighborhood that highlights the connection between the neighborhood and the park. 

Kim Loper of Jubilee Arts was selected by a committee of neighbors to install a temporary public art piece. For the past few weeks she's worked with neighbors, artists, and city agencies to complete the project...and we are almost done! 

On Sunday the 18th there will be an unveiling of the work and a recognition of everyone who has provided input, the artists, and the project's sponsors. We will be serving light refreshments and invite all to attend.

Please invite your neighbors! No RSVP required.

**Baltimore's 4th Annual Cranksgiving**

Artboard 11.png


What's Cranksgiving, you ask?

Cranksgiving is a national event that combines bike riding and giving back. This scavenger hunt/food drive will send teams of riders across the city to collect food items to benefit Moveable Feast and the Franciscan Center. Basically, it's all about food for people in need and riding bikes with friends, new and old.

What does the day look like?
12:30pm | Check in + day of registration at Charm City Meadworks
1:45pm | Pre-ride rules and kick-off
2:00pm | Biking food scavenger hunt throughout Baltimore
4:00pm | Receipts and food due at Charm City Meadworks
4:00pm - 6:00pm | Awards and after party at Charm City Meadworks

How does registration work? Do I need a team?
We encourage you to register online before the event! This is the only way to purchase a one of a kind t-shirt, and makes check in at the event much quicker.

October 29 - November 4 | Early bird online registration
This is the only way to purchase a Cranksgiving t-shirt!

November 5 - November 16 | Online registration
Makes check in at event way quicker!

November 17 | On site registration

Whether you register beforehand or day of, all participants must arrive between 12:30pm and 1:45pm in person on the day of the event to check in. All team members must be present and you'll receive the manifest (the rules and locations) when checking in.

Riding is way more fun with friends, so Cranksgiving must be ridden with teams of 3 or 4. Don't have a team? Register as a free agent and we’ll help you find folks to ride with.

How does the scavenger hunt work? 
When you check in, teams will be handed their manifests. On the manifest is a list of grocery stores and food items to purchase, each worth a certain number of points. The team with the highest number of points, in the shortest amount of time wins! The scavenger hunt ride will begin at 2pm and only teams who turn in their manifests, receipts and food by 4pm will be considered for prizes. Then stick around for the after party, where we'll announce the winners and prizes, and for drinks, food and celebration!

How much does it cost to participate? 
By design, Cranksgiving is and will always be a free event — meaning Bikemore will never charge registration to participate. We do ask that each person on a team bring $10-15 to help purchase food items on the list. But how much you are able to spend is entirely up to you! 

What should I bring?
- Working bike
- Bag to carry purchases (backpacks, panniers, baskets — whatever you have!) 
- $10-15 for purchasing items we will donate

Is it a race? I don't ride very fast. Will I still have fun? 
Kinda. That's Ok! Absolutely! Cranksgiving is designed to be a social team event because what's more fun that riding through the city with some friends and giving back?!

What happens if it rains?
This is a rain or shine event. Riding in the rain/cold/wind makes you tough. So be tough and show up and ride, even if the weather isn't perfect. 

Can’t ride but still want to help?
We need lots of volunteers to make the ride run smoothly! Sign up to volunteer.

Invite your friends on Facebook!

**Complete Streets Third Reader & Celebration**

Complete Streets is heading to Third Reader! If the City Council votes to approve the Complete Streets bill on Third Reader, it will become officially approved by the City Council and head to Mayor Pugh's desk for her signature.

Complete Streets are an essential part of creating a Baltimore that is healthy, safe and provides access to opportunity for all. But Baltimore continued to fall behind cities all across America in designing streets that prioritized the safety of people over the speed of cars. 

Rather than pin our hopes on a single elected or appointed leader — we took action. On October 29th, we get to celebrate the results of two years of direct lobbying, drafting legislation, educating the public, and building a coalition. None of which would have been possible without your support.

Join us in both celebrating and seeing this through the finish line!

5:00PM: City Council Chambers, Baltimore City Hall, 100 Holliday St
Join us in Council Chambers to celebrate this milestone with the Complete Streets Coalition. The Council meeting begins at 5:00, but show up early to get in the building and hopefully get a seat. ID required to enter the building.

7:30PM: Celebration at Penn and Quill, 1701 N Charles St

Then join us at Penn and Quill to celebrate this huge accomplishment!
