A bike commuter resource guide is now available from the Baltimore Metropolitan Council.
It talks about getting your bike ready and laws and offers maps and routes, as well.
There's also information about combining your biking with other forms of public transportation. You may not know, but you are allowed to bring your bike on light rail and the subway in Baltimore, and the public buses now also have racks.
There certainly has been a lot of talk about safety and security when it comes to biking in the city. But the council and area officials say they're are working on the issues.
They're adding more bike lanes and racks. More than 100 racks have been added in the region this year, and you can request a rack in your area here.
Further new bike routes are being planned for Bolton Hill, Reservoir Hill and Lake Avenue. They'll either connect existing routes or planned routes.
