New Belgium Bike

New Belgium Brewing is known for its love of biking.  Not only does the company name brews after bikes (Fat Tire, Shift), but they also donate to bike advocacy groups, sponsor local and national bike events and have a custom cruiser bicycle (as seen in Race Pace’s lobby).  Parked at Oriole Park on Friday was another kind of New Belgium bicycle (above).  With a host of stickers and coasters, a New Belgium fan created their own custom bike.

The weather cooperated for March’s Family Bike Party on Saturday. A group of about 20 joined in the casual spin around the Inner Harbor with some very unique bikes.

Abandoned Bike near Farmers Market


August 27th, 2012 | Categories: Parking, Unique Bikes | Post Comment

A couple months ago, a blue Peugeot bike was locked to a sign post at the corner of Pleasant Street and the JFX off ramp.   Around the Farmers Market area and along Fallsway, many bikes are locked up to sign posts as there’s limited bike parking at the market and none at Health Care for the Homeless.

As time passed, the bike lost weight. First the front wheel disappeared.  Then the back wheel and brakes, followed by the derailleur. A mid-grade kryptonite lock kept the frame in place, until it finally disappeared over the weekend.


Unique Bike Seat Lock

 This picture comes from Scott Adams, food blogger and transportation planner extraordinaire.

Scott spied this unique seat lock at the Camden MARC Station.  Is this a quality seat lock that only those with a chain tool could access?  A smart reuse for an old chain or is this seat even worth saving?


Occupy Baltimore….with bikes


October 6th, 2011 | Categories: Unique Bikes | Post Comment

“Occupy Baltimore” is taking over McKeldin Plaza. There were only a few people there, but they all rode bikes to get there. Here’s one bike that caught my eye – extracycle with child carrier and a unique ‘melon’ helmet to protect the melon.
