Annapolis By Bike offers visitors to Annapolis a unique environmental and historical experience as you pedal around the 300-year-old national landmark on a bicycle, checking out a wide assortment of environmental projects and learning about one of America’s most colorful historic colonial-era cities located along the shores of the majestic Chesapeake Bay.
If you have your own bike, the cost for the tour is $50.
We ride at a very leisurely pace and stop at many attractions which are conveniently spaced every five to ten minutes apart. So, you don't need to be a great cyclist to comfortably complete the ride and the bikes are a breeze to master.
Your guide is local legend and celebrated Chesapeake Bay author and story teller, Steve Carr, who will spice up your ride with the latest juicy town gossip and political intrigue, the inside boating scuttlebutt from America’s sailing capital, and the history you never hear about on those other tours. Steve will have you laughing the whole way, while riding along the scenic waterways of Annapolis, spinning his yarns and telling it like it really is ... and was.

Along the way, you will get to look at and learn about the many different urban environmental initiatives undertaken by the City of Annapolis, as you leisurely ride along the Colonial Annapolis Maritime Trail, an officially designated segment of the East Coast Greenway Trail, running from Maine to Florida.
This isn't yet another tour where you get fed the standard re-fried beans, canned script. Every tour is a little bit different - like good jazz.
ANNAPOLIS BY BIKE is an EXPERIENCE you will never forget!
