The Baltimore Bicycling Club (BBC) was established in 1967 and has a membership of over 1000 riders. The mission of our not-for-profit recreational organization is to promote and sponsor bicycling activities in Baltimore City and neighboring Anne Arundel, Baltimore, Carroll, Harford, and Howard counties. The BBC also promotes, defends, and protects the rights of bicyclists for a safe road riding environment in our communities through advocacy and education.

Here at Baltimore Bicycle Works, our goal is to put more people on bikes because they’re practical, sustainable, beautiful, and fun! From full-suspension mountain bikes to sturdy urban commuters to carbon road bikes, we love them all. Many people come in and ask what our shop is all about, so we think an introduction is in order. We are a friendly, service oriented bicycle shop ready to handle all your cycling needs. We work hard to make sure our shop is a comfortable place for folks new to cycling to learn more, and for experienced riders to get the latest parts and expert service.
We think bike shops shouldn’t be so elite as to ignore the needs of your average bicycle commuter or recreational rider. In addition to our commitment to building the cycling community here in Baltimore, we are committed to democracy and so have organized our bike shop as a workers cooperative. What does that mean to our customers? It means that every person you interact with at our shop is either an equal owner of the business, or someone working towards becoming an owner. This translates to exceptional customer service and a deep commitment from all of our staff members to making sure you receive quality service and advice that keeps you coming back.
