I Love Riding in the City

Where do you live and what’s it like riding in your city?
Living in Baltimore is like riding in multiple cities from various parts of the country all at once. Within a matter of minutes you can be downtown mashing through traffic, chilling by the water in Fells Point, or uptown cranking through Charles Village making your way back toward the culture filled east side.
What was your favorite city to ride in, and why?
I have to say my favorite city I’ve ridden in has been Baltimore. Baltimore is the city in which I began riding in, and the city for which my love runs deep. No other city can take her place.
Why do you love riding in the city?
I also love riding in the city because it’s therapeutic. After a stressful tour at work, I get on my bike and mash down to the waterfront of downtown. Seeing and dealing with the stresses of my job can be very tiring on the body and mind. As strange as it may seem, I need to hear the heartbeat (car horns blowing, construction sites going, and big buses moving) of the city to unwind. After all, the city of “BMORE” is the love of my life.
