Join us for Baltimore’s first ABCs of Family Biking: celebrating the joy of biking with children by introducing local families to the tools, skills and equipment that can help them start biking together. Whether you’re brand-new to biking or you own a Dutch “bakefiets” – the ABCs has something for you and your family.

What parents will like:

  • “Pedal Parent” Show-and-Tell – Moms and dads who bike will show off their equipment and answer questions about everything from bike safety to play-dates.
  • Family-friendly Bike Shops – Connect with local shops and retailers to learn about cargo bikes like the Yuba Mundo or Bullitt, and seats like the Yepp Mini or iBert.
  • Refreshments from Red Emma’s – No coffee in the morning is no excuse not to come down for the ABCs – Red Emma’s and Thread Coffee will be there with refreshments.

What kids will like:

  • Bikeadelic Decorations – Local artist Andy Dahl will be offering workshops on turning a plain 16″ ride into a colorful scraper bike
  • Bike Rodeo – Children on their own two-wheeler will enjoy this a fun and educational youth bike safety workshop led by Bike Maryland! The Bike Rodeo will run from around 11am to noon – register today so we know you’re coming.

Want to ride up from South Baltimore? Meet “pedal parent” Jen D. at Federal Hill Park at 9:30am to ride up to Station North with our South Baltimore bike train. Just send us a quick email so we know to expect you.
