Celebrate Baltimore's place in bicycling history at the Olde Timey Bike Fest
Baltimore is the City of Firsts, as any visitor to the Museum of Industry knows. We boast the first umbrella factory, the first mass-produced ice cream for everyday consumption, the first Old Bay, the first purpose-built museum building in the Western Hemisphere (and the old Peale building down on North Holliday Street is still vacant, if you're looking for new digs), and the first large-head tennis racket. And now, if Baltimore Heritage has its way, Baltimore will be recognized as the birthplace of American bicycling.
