Why become a member?

The cost of your membership will be used to support Bikemore’s staff and advocacy costs. With your support, more bike lanes and bike racks will be installed, our Downtown Bicycle Network and cycletrack plans will be finalized, and we will continue to work on bringing Bikeshare to Baltimore. Members will receive discounts at local bike shops like Light Street Cycles and Baltimore Bicycle Works, an annual report detailing our progress, and lots of other stuff in the works!

Our goal: To increase and improve bicycle infrastructure, policies, and awareness to create a safer, healthier, and more livable cycling city. We do this by advocating for bicycle infrastructure & pro-bicycle policy; promoting everyday riding to increase overall bicycle ridership; and promoting awareness of Baltimore's Cyclists' Bill of Rights among all Baltimore residents and stakeholders.

Loch Raven Ride & BBQ August 17

Buy your tickets today!

Did you know that the City closes some of the roads surrounding Loch Raven Reservoir every weekend for people to walk, bicycle, etc. in peace? Well, come check it out for yourself on Saturday, August 17! Bikemore will lead a group ride to the Reservoir followed by a BBQ at a private home in Towson!

Vegans & vegetarians welcome, and please let us know of any dietary preferences you might have. All proceeds benefit Bikemore.
 

Bikemore Community Cleanup: Clipper Mill & Falls Road

On August 24, from 9am until we're done, a group of volunteers will be hacking away overgrowth and cleaning debris from the roadway on Clipper Mill Road and Falls Road between Ash Street and the Jones Falls Trail switchback (map). This popular route for cyclists needs some maintenance. The City will provide trucks, but we need to supply the person power! If you have gas-powered chainsaws or other landscaping tools you'd like to lend to the cause, please let us know.

Baltimore Bicycle Works is hosting a BBQ after the cleanup for folks who help. Click here for more information and to RSVP.
