Bike & Brunch Greenway Tour

62231644_10161958218915261_2842870008915165184_o.jpg

Rails-to-Trails Conservancy and Baltimore Greenway Trails Coalition is excited to partner with Bike and Brunch Tours to host a bike ride along the southern segments of the Baltimore Greenway Trails Network! This effort is being led by the Rails-to-Trails Conservancy/Baltimore Greenway Trails Coalition to complete a 35-mile trail loop around the city by developing 10-miles of trails between Baltimore's existing trail infrastructure. 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 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. 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.

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.

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!

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.

Stop by to browse and sip a coffee, come and get frantic to snag a deal on that vintage derailleur, schlep over that bike that’s been languishing on craigslist, or unload your basement into a van to Marie Kondo your bike life.

If you’ve got a previously loved bike to sell, a spot in the bike corral is $15 per bike. We will watch over your bike all day so you can head out to shop! Got a bunch of old parts and doodads? Well a full vendor table is only $45! Vendor tickets can be purchased at either of our shop locations, or online at our web shop.
