I ususally walk there to catch the MARC train but was wondering if anyone knew whether or not it has any bike racks since I would like to start riding my bike there (and around town), thus meaning I get to sleep in a bit longer before the morning commute. Thanks for any help you may have.

PS: I haven't seen any there when walking there, but was hoping that I missed something that I should have caught.

They are there. I use them frequently. They are on the east side of the stadium, located at the center of the warehouse near the Marc station and the Conway street/howard street/395 entrance. There also might be some at the south side of the stadium, but I'm not sure.

PM me or post if you have any other bicycle route questions in Baltimore, I have plenty of knowledge on the subject.

Have any suggestions for 10-20 mile loops I can ride starting in Fed Hill that stay in safe areas? I've been riding up to Patterson Park and circling it a few times. The round trip with a loop or two around Patterson is right about 10 miles.

I don't know, safe is pretty subjective. I take it you aren't looking to do the Gwynns Falls Trail? I've never run into any trouble riding it, and if you go on the weekend you are likely to see other bikers.

If I were you, I'd ride the GFT up to Dickeyville and back. (part of this is foute is firmly packed gravel). It's truly an gorgeous ride with a lot of history.

An unusual ride that I used to do sometimes was down to Curtis Bay and back via the hanover Street Bridge (not great for riding but there is a sidewalk for walking your bike). It's a far-flung neighborhood that many never see. Good hill workout. Brooklyn and Curtis Bay are rough around the edges and you may not feel safe, but I've never had a problem.

You could also ride down to the airport via the Hanover Street Bridge, Belle Grove Rd --> camp meade rd and then do a loop around BWI.

Longer and fun is riding the light rail to Glen Burnie and then riding the B&A bike trail to Annapolis for lunch. The trip back is hilly.

But really - just do the GFT already

Thanks! I'll try the Gwynn Falls Trail beyond where I've taken it. My GF got me freaked out about the areas it goes through but I'll scope it out on my own.
