This year’s tour will take you on an 8-10 mile ride through the garden, farm, and greenspace gems of North-Central Baltimore. Come along for a relax-paced ride to secret and not-so-secret community managed green spaces that will inspire your gardening ventures at home and in your community.
This year’s tour will end at the Druid Hill Park pool for a celebratory swim! Cool off, enjoy locally-grown snacks, connect with other riders, and take home information to help your growing adventures.
We expect the ride to conclude at the pool by 12:30. The “official” post-ride swim and celebration will last about an hour; you’re welcome to swim as long as you like (or until the pool closes at 7pm).
