Tour dem Parks, Hon! is an annual bike ride held the second Sunday of June. The ride takes locals and visitors through Baltimore’s parks and neighborhoods. Riders get an up-close view of regional parks like Carroll, Patterson, Clifton and Druid Hill, as well as some quietly tucked away gems.
Participants choose from 4 routes: 14 miles--the family ride on the Gwynn’s Falls Trail, 25 miles, 35 miles, or a metric century (64 miles).
The Tour is followed by a relaxed barbecue with live music. Proceeds are donated to groups and non-profit organizations affiliated with parks, greening, and bicycling.
Tour dem Parks has grown from 250 riders in 2006 to over 1000 in 2009. As we expand our marketing and public relations efforts the ride continues to attract new participants, while many riders from previous years return.
And as always, 2640 dishes out events chock full of avant-garde culture, community grants, anti-war action, and handmade crafts.
