The Baltimore Bike Party continues its exponential growth as over 1300 participated in October’s Halloween Brew Ha Ha ride. What does 1300 cyclists look like? Most riders were dressed in costumes which made the sight even more entertaining. On average, it takes 1300 cyclists 10-15 minutes to pass through an intersection. The ride rolled out from Washington Monument down Cathedral Street and out Pratt Street with sweeping help from the Baltimore Police Department. Motorists and pedestrians alike cheered the ride along through downtown and Canton. The ride enjoyed the first rest stop at Canton Waterfront Park before heading back through downtown and up Fulton Avenue where the entire neighborhood was electrified by the bike party. The party transitioned to non-pedaling at Union Craft Brewing where food trucks, DJs, a moonbounce and costume contest rounded out the evening/early morning.
