In July of 1814, Captain Henry Thompson reported that this month began with sultry mornings and showers in the afternoons. The weather hasn’t changed much even 200 years later but we’re rolling through the height of a sultry Baltimore summer with some new tours.
For the casual bicyclist, we have a new tour of historic mills in the Jones Falls Valley, where you can roll down hill then take the light rail home! For anyone curious about Baltimore’s elite in the Gilded Age, we have the chance to look inside the Jenkins Mansion in Mount Vernon, one of the city’s most gilded and best preserved residences. Please join us!
