Baltimore Living

Best Place to Bike

The Baltimore and Annapolis Trail

Begins at Dorsey Road in Glen Burnie; ends at Boulters Way and Route 50, dnr.md.gov/publiclands/bikeb&a.asp

Of course, there's no guarantee that you won't get jumped, have rocks chucked at your head, or get spit on, or that your bike won't fold up in the world's largest pothole out this way, but we can say with assurance that the odds are a lot less than most city riding. Starting at the southern tip of Baltimore/Washington International Airport, the B&A trail shoots straight down the peninsula along an old railroad bed toward Annapolis, ending right at the Route 450 bridge. For 14 miles, dig the county backyards, bamboo forests, wetlands, fresh(er) air, and cool old train bridges along the way. It's pretty flat, smooth, and safe, and it's even accessible by light rail.
