Itinerary:
Tour du Port, Baltimore's Premier Bicycle Event, takes place October 4th. Join thousands of riders at the Canton Waterfront Park to kick off the 16th Annual Tour du Port. Routes range from 12 to a new 1/2 century 50 mile ride! The route travels through over twelve historic neighborhoods, waterfront areas and parks. This fully supported tour includes lunch, refreshments at rest stops, map and sag and a post-ride celebration at Tour's end. This event is One Less Car's Annual Fundraiser! All fees go directly to advancing the programs and advocacy efforts of One Less Car, a non-profit dedicated to walking, bicycling and mass transit in Maryland. Click here to register: http://onelesscar.org/page.php?id=156.


One Less Car works throughout Maryland to reduce automobile congestion and pollution by decreasing car usage. Our goal is to help people get to where they need to go efficiently. OLC works to increase walking, biking, carpooling, public transit, telecommuting, and flex scheduling opportunities. These smart transit choices promote physical activity, physical and emotional well-being, social interaction, livable communities, equity and environmental stewardship.


TdP is OLC's only fundraiser. We would like to deepen our relationship with the Maryland Outdoor Club. OLC substantially relies on bike and outdoor club donations for support as we work intensely to keep the roads safe for bicyclists and walkers and to help halt the rate of climate change and to protect our natural environment.
