Cycle Maryland Showcase

Show us how YOU cycle Maryland

Do you ride for your health, or to save a few bucks?
Do you cruise for leisure, or seek out a thrill?
Are you an expert city cyclist, or do you prefer country roads?
Do you load up with cargo or travel light?
Solo or group riding?
Fat or skinny tires?
Business suit or spandex?

May is national bike month. It’s the perfect time of year to get out on two wheels, breathe deep, stretch your legs, and get a new perspective on the places you pass through. From the mountains of Garrett County to the flatlands of the Shore, Maryland is a great place for cycling.

Help us showcase cycling in Maryland and encourage others to get out and ride. Upload a photo and fill in the short form below, telling us about how YOU cycle Maryland. We’ll feature these photos in the Cycle Maryland showcase gallery. Your photo (and story) become part of the Cycle Maryland story.

For fun.

 
Looking down from the historic Rock Creek Trestle, one can see the Rock Creek Trail disappear into a lush world of green.

It was a nice day.

 
The Rock Creek Trestle has stood since 1892 and used to carry trains until the 1980s, now reincarnated as a bicycle/walking bridge. How nice of a way to prolong the service of historic structures!

Kensington

 
To explore the antique shops and carry our findings home.

 
Bikes can carry more than we expect.

  The trail changes for each season. This

  beautiful scenery.

Where You Rode:   Silver Spring 
 
Why You Rode:   Commuting 
 
  Tired of being forced to use bike lanes
  when they are, in effect, suicide lanes.  
 
When the road is better (or even if it 
  isn't), I should have the right to use it.

Privateer Day Festival in Fell's Point


It's fun, good exercise, easy to park, and doesn't pollute the Chesapeake or our air

Cargo bikes seem expensive, except when compared to auto repairs, and they'll make your kids love cycling.
