Take a self/guided bicycle tour from Highlandtown to the Travel America Center and back, that explores how the urban design of “invisible” public spaces affect our everyday experiences of eastern Baltimore. The tour investigates the architectural dynamics and social conditions that make places such as the Eastern Avenue Underpass and the O’Donnell Street Interchange as mundane and confounding as they are fascinating and beautiful. A version of this tour was featured on the podcast 99% Invisible. Bring your bicycle, helmet & radical pedestrianism!
