A few weeks ago, I was riding back from a meeting and passed by this wonderful site. So many bikes, unfortunately, such little space for bike parking. The new Morgan Stanley building in Harbor East was in the final stages of construction when this picture was taken. I’m not sure if there is additional bike parking now available but it is next to ample vehicular parking as covered by Baltimore Brew.
This picture speaks volumes about bike commuters in Baltimore:
It really doesn’t matter what kind of bike you ride. Here the BMXs almost outnumber the road bikes. Even O’s pitcher Jeremy Guthrie rides a BMX to the Yard.
If there’s something solid to lock to, cyclists are going to use it as a rack. A League of American Bicyclists survey question asks: How many bike racks are in your community? If we count all the official racks, sign posts, parking meters and tree guards, we would have a million bike racks easy.
