Route & Map
The event course is approximately 15 miles. We encourage riders of all skill levels to participate in the event. The ride is very casual and riders can go at their own pace.

We’ll have a huge group of people riding together which will make the atmosphere of the ride comfortable, safe, and enjoyable. Both casual riders and those more experienced should enjoy the variety of sights along the ride.

The 2015 route takes participants through many of Baltimore’s famous sites including Penn Station, City Hall, Inner Harbor, Fells Point, Little Italy, Shot Tower, Museum of Art, the Maryland Zoo, and much more!
