Hidden away off Falls Road in northern Baltimore City, this bike shop can be challenging to find but is worth the effort.  I had heard it was the recipient of multiple “Best of Baltimore” awards, and as soon as I stepped into the store, it was easy to see why. While the shop is not the largest or fanciest around, it is extremely welcoming and unintimidating for the novice cyclist. This retail and repair shop is a workers co-op, meaning that all employees are either owners of the store or are apprentices that are working towards ownership. The store is very proud of its two female owners, and the increased stake in the success of the company means that the employees are generally willing to do whatever it takes to help meet your needs and get you excited about biking. There is an ample gear and shoe selection, and recreational and performance fits are available. The shop offers very reasonable hybrid, commuter, road, and mountain bike rentals at the price of $25 per day or $100 per week, and men’s and women’s models are available. The shop is located along the Jones Fall Trail, one of Baltimore’s premiere bike trails, and a Saturday morning group ride organized by the Baltimore Bicycling Club leaves from the store.
