The American Visionary Arts Museum and Race Pace Bicycles are partnering again this year, presenting casual pre-Flicks From The Hill neighborhood rides.
On three Thursday nights this summer—July 18, Aug. 1, and Aug. 15—relaxed rides will launch from the Race Pace shop at 1410 Key Highway (right near AVAM). Bicyclists will pedal through Ft. McHenry and the historic neighborhoods and parks of Federal Hill, ending at AVAM at 8 p.m. and allowing participants an hour to visit the museum and then catch that night's free outdoor film.
Riders can bring their own bike or call ahead to reserve one of Race Pace's limited number of rental bicycles.
After the ride volunteers from Bikemore, Baltimore's nonprofit bicycle advocacy organization, will offer a bike valet service for movie-goers.
AVAM is open and free from 5 p.m. - 9 p.m. on Flicks From The Hill nights. The museum's current exhibition is THE ART OF STORYTELLING: Lies, Enchantment, Humor & Truth.
