Baltimore Bike Party & Afterparty @ Lexington Market Tonight

Tonight is the final Friday of the month and that means it’s time for the June ride of the Baltimore Bike Party. Tonight’s theme is the 80′s, so be sure you don’t get your legwarmers and parachute pants caught in the chain!

The ride begins at the Washington Monument in Mount Vernon with cyclists meeting in the north quadrant of the park at 7 pm and everyone gets underway at 7:30. This month’s route is a not-too-long but just-long enough 8 mile course with minimal hills through central and west Baltimore with what’s shaping up to be the biggest afterparty yet in the parking lot of Lexington Market. You can view the map below, and find more helpful information on the Bike Party’s site.

In it we discuss how finding the right hotel and doing a little advance planning can eliminate the need for even the staunchest car advocate to drive during a vacation, and break down what it costs to stay behind the wheel during a typical week-long summer holiday.
