North Ave Rising Open House [Harford Heights Elementary School]

  • Harford Heights Elementary School (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

North Avenue Rising is a $27 million dollar project to redesign five miles of North Avenue. The bulk of this contribution is from a Federal TIGER Grant and the State of Maryland. $1 million is coming from Baltimore City. In comparison, the Charles Street project from 28th Street to University Parkway was $25 million, with $2 million coming from Baltimore City. 

This $27 million investment for North Avenue is nowhere near the amount of money that is needed to truly transform North Avenue to become the great street we know it can be. Why should just 5 blocks of North Central Baltimore receive transformative investment, but not 5 miles of North Avenue?

In February, the Project Team, led by MTA, is hosting a series of Open House meetings focused on obtaining specific community feedback regarding design elements for the project. 

We need people to show up to these meetings to advocate for additional resources to be invested in the project, so that protected bike lanes, dedicated transit lanes and streetscaping for the entire corridor can become a possibility.

**28th & 29th Streets Traffic Calming Community Meeting**

Neighbors are organizing to slow traffic on 28th and 29th Streets! 

This is the second community-focused meeting to gather neighborhood input from those involved in communities along the 28th and 29th Street corridor. This meeting is designed to share information on the need for calming traffic in this corridor and collect input from neighbors on efforts to calm traffic and improve safety for everyone. 

The first meeting was held in September and this meeting will follow the same format of sharing information related to the need to calm traffic along these streets and engage neighbors to share where and how they foresee improving traffic and pedestrian safety in the area. Organizers will also briefly share recent developments toward this cause since the last meeting was held. 

This effort to address traffic calming is volunteer-lead by people living in the neighborhoods impacted by these streets, including volunteer members of the Charles Village Civic Association and the Greater Remington Improvement Association.

Potomac Street Bike Lane Cleanup

The Southeast Group Rides group is organizing a fall cleanup of the Potomac Street Bike Lane!

Let's get together to do the dirty work of cleaning up the debris and leaf litter clogging up our brand new bike lane on Potomac St! Instead of a ride, we'll gather, rakes in hand, and get to work beautifying the bike lane and our neighborhood. Afterwards, we can get lunch and/or hot-chocolate together. 

The cleanup starts at 10am, but come out earlier to get rakes, bags, and gloves. I'll have all the supplies, so you only need to bring yourself and a big smile! (Bring your bike too if you want ... we can always ride afterwards)

**Baltimore's 3rd Annual Cranksgiving**

Cranksgiving2017-final-proofv2.jpg

Poster design by Ian Jackson


Save the date for the 3rd Annual Baltimore Cranksgiving!

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. 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 | Registration at Peabody Heights Brewery
1:45pm | Pre-ride rules and kick-off
2:00pm | Biking food scavenger hunt throughout Baltimore
4:00pm | Receipts and food due at Peabody Heights Brewery
4:00pm - 6:00pm | Awards and after party at Peabody Heights Brewery

How does registration work? Do I need a team?
RSVP on Facebook so we can anticipate the number of riders, but you'll have to register your team (of 3-4) between 12:30 and 1:45 in person on the day of the event. All team members must be present when you register and you'll receive the manifest (the rules and locations) when registering. Don't have a team? Come anyway! We will help "free agents" find folks to ride with on the day of the event or you can post in the Facebook Event and get one going beforehand! 

How does the scavenger hunt work? 
When you register, 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 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 o announce the winners and prizes, and for beer, pizza 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
- (Optional) Smartphone to take photos and upload to social media for additional points! 

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 team event (because what's more fun that riding through the city with some friends? Don't worry if you don't have a team formed when you show up, we can help free agents or pairs come together!) While prizes are awarded to teams with the best time and highest number of points, additional prizes will be awarded for things like best team costume and team spirit! 

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. 

RSVP + Invite your friends to join you in a fun day of riding and giving!

The next steps in the project is a series of community meetings to gather input.

We need people to show up to these meetings to advocate for protected bike lanes and dedicated transit lanes for the entire corridor, even if that means reducing travel lanes for private vehicles.

**Maryland Ave. Cycle Track's 1st BIRTHDAY PARTY !!!**

web banner.png

The Maryland Avenue Cycle Track is turning ONE!

A year ago the protected bike lane on Maryland Avenue went in, and since then we've heard an outpouring of support. Over and over we hear, "I now feel comfortable commuting to work again" or "I can now ride in the city with my kids!" It's pretty clear that it has changed the day to day lives of a lot of people.

But one of the silliest things we also hear a lot is that no one uses it. While we know that's not true, we're inviting you to join us in using it together, and celebrate the best bike lane in Baltimore turning one!

10am | Meet at Wyman Park Dell for coffee, birthday donuts, and meeting others who love to bike.

11am | BIKE PARADE leaves Wyman Park Dell heading south on the Maryland Avenue. This is a slow, fun, silly ride. All are welcome to ride with us! 

until 2pm | Lunch + Drinks at Mt. Vernon Market Place. Pay as you go. Taste of the Marketplace - $5 specials throughout the Market will be going on, so there will be $5 specials at (almost) every stall at the Mount Vernon Marketplace! 

Whether you live along the Maryland Ave, have been using it to get to work, or want a protected bike lane in your neighborhood — come ride with us! The cycle track is a BIG win for bikes in Baltimore, and showing your enthusiasm for it demonstrates that we want to see this in all neighborhoods.

So come in costume, come with noise makers, come with your kiddos, come with bright colors. Join us in celebrating Maryland Avenue Bike Lane's first birthday with a big bike parade!

**Shifting Power: Intro to Safe Streets + Neighborhood Advocacy**

IMG_5047 copy.jpg

Have you ever wanted traffic to travel slower through your neighborhood? Is there an intersection that feels dangerous to cross on foot or by bike? Is there a spot where traffic crashes frequently occur?  

The way our streets are designed determines the health and safety of our neighborhoods. For too long, streets have only been designed to move cars as fast as possible. This often means streets aren’t comfortable places for people to walk, bike, or sit on your stoop visiting with your neighbors.

The results are decreased transportation choices and less life on the streets. But small changes can make a big impact. The key is understanding what choices are possible, and how to advocate for them to occur.

This program provides livable streets advocacy training to everyday citizens — ensuring that neighborhoods are equipped to challenge the status quo and build power to create change in the built environment. In this four hour free workshop, you will:

  • Learn the basics of traffic engineering and urban planning and know what tools are available to address your issues.

  • Understand the relationship between street design and public health, and how an unsafe street may be making your neighborhood less healthy.

  • How to navigate existing power structures in our City and your neighborhood that sometimes fear change and maintain the status quo.

  • Learn how to lead a community master planning process and get larger street projects in the Capital Improvement Process.

  • Connect to community resources that can support your efforts to create healthy, safe streets.

  • Meet other folks from across the city also interested in building a Baltimore that is safe to travel on foot, bike, or transit.

Taking the mystery out of how our streets get designed shifts the power back into the hands of everyday citizens. Making sure that every neighborhood has advocates well versed in transportation and land use planning, means that when changes do occur residents are ready to advocate for projects that will make our streets healthier and safer.

This workshop is free but is capped at 30 participants. So register early below to ensure your spot. Want Bikemore staff to visit your neighborhood and give an abbreviated version of this workshop to your neighbors? Send us an email to learn more.

This is the second run of a similar workshop we gave in June.

**Fill the Room: Mid-Town Streetscape Public Meeting**

Screen Shot 2017-09-28 at 12.17.31 PM.png

FILL THE ROOM! 

Make sure the Midtown Streetscape Project's protected bike lane on Mount Royal Avenue is actually safe and useful!

Bikemore was founded around advocacy on the Midtown Streetscape Project, which includes a major redesign of Mount Royal Avenue. Originally, this project contained no bicycle facilities. Through advocacy by Baltimore residents (forming Bikemore) and MICA students, bicycle facilities on the project became guaranteed. 

But, the project is still flawed. Over the past two years, DOT met with Councilman Costello, Bikemore, UB, MICA, the Lyric, Mount Royal Improvement Association, and Mount Vernon Belvedere Association on our joint concerns.

DOT committed to exploring the following recommendations, and reporting back with definitive answers before the project was awarded: 

1) Consider a road diet to slow traffic, preserving medians and making room for protected bike lanes, and saving millions of dollars in expensive concrete work. Traffic data supported this possibility

2) Extend protected bike lanes the entire Mount Royal Corridor to North Avenue and to Guilford Avenue.

3) Close the dangerous I-83 offramp onto Mount Royal at Saint Paul Street, which was always intended to be a temporary offramp during I-83 construction.

On Monday, we learned that project construction had begun, despite our requests over the past year for updates since our last meeting with DOT.

We do not know if any of these requests have been honored or if changes have been made.

BMore Jews on Bikes is a social bike riding group centered around Jewish identity and outreach in Baltimore. And, as the Jewish high holy days approach, our next ride will be in conjunction with a tashlich. From the Hebrew, tashlich means "to cast" as in we will be casting away our sins as we turn over the year. The casting is symbolized by throwing bread into water, so come join us for this traditional and light ceremony. We'll be riding somewhere along the inner harbor (exact destination to be determined) and end the ride in Fed Hill to get bagels and coffee. All our welcome.

More info and RSVP.
