Join the Friends of the Mill Corridor Friday, October 10th 6 to 8pm at Union Mill (1500 Union Ave) to discuss how you can clean up this the Jones Falls. The EPA is funding community clean up efforts in this precious watershed. Join environmental scientists and advocates from the University of Baltimore, the Institute of Marine and Environmental Technology, and Blue Water Baltimore to learn about opportunities for City residents to be involved. The Friends are looking for community partners to help create:
- A community adopt a stream program for the Jones Falls that runs along Falls Road and Clipper Mill Road
- Education and outreach programs to engage our young citizens
- A pollution monitoring program to help track pollution and contaminants that entering the stream
- Sustained spruce up efforts
We are so excited to be honored once again with the City Paper’s Best of Baltimore award. We would like to thank all of our loyal customers and the editors at City Paper for your continued support and for this great recognition. We only hope to continue to live up to the high standards that are the Best of Baltimore. Thanks again!
Come out and support our guys and gals in pink at this weekend’s Charm City Cross. The races (and other festivities) will be going on all day, so come by, show Team BBC some love and enjoy a beautiful afternoon in Druid Park. A full list of races and team member entries can be found here.
If the action packed day of racing is not enough to lore you out this weekend, Music to Your Gears will also be going on in the park. The event will feature music, drink, food and of course bikes. All to benefit BikeMore, Baltimore’s bike advocacy organization.
We are so excited to reveal our redesigned gift certificates. The vision and design is all thanks to our good friend Ian Jackson. The new design includes a wallet friendly tear off and a matching envelope. They make a great gift for any occasion and with their beautiful new look, you can feel truly proud to give it to even the pickiest cyclist in your life.
The shop is open during Artscape and while the festivities may make it a bit more difficult to reach us, we hope these tips may make your visit easier.
Artscape is in full swing and road closures will continue through Sunday evening. Please see the map below for details about what streets are most impacted by the festivities. There is also a full list of street closures here.
Coming from the North: The easiest way to get to us is on Falls road heading south from the Hampden area. If you are coming from the North Central area of of the City, Maryland Ave is still open and you can turn right from Maryland Ave on to Lafayette and make another right on to Falls Road. We are the second building on the right.
From the South: It may be easiest to take i83 to the Falls Road exit, u-turn on Falls Road (when it is safe to do so) and head South on Falls Road. Vere right at the intersection with Roland Ave and turn Left at the intersection with Clipper Mill Road. Continue on Falls Road until you reach us. We are on the right hand side just past the Street Car Museum.
If you need further assistance with directions, please feel free to call 410-605-0705. We do have parking available in front of the shop.
