3/19/10 Ride to Work

Today was a first, instead of getting up and whipping around the neighborhood I got up and rode into work. It has been beautiful here, and today was a perfect day, I am sure this is not going to last. To get there I rode through town and saw lots of rowhouses, this quiet street is in Resevoir Hill.
Then I cut through Druid Hill Park, and passed by the conservatory and botanical gardens there.
Then it was on up the grade to work, almost entirely uphill, arriving at the Dickeyville Mill, where our shop is.
Put in a full day at work, then took the Gwynns Falls Trail all the way back down to downtown to get home. Here is a chunk of the trail where it is still gravel up near the shop.
And here a little closer in to downtown.
The trail runs through Leakin Park, and several neighborhood parks on the way to the Inner Harbor. At this park there were a bunch of people out enjoying the day, and playing a little hoops.
A little closer and I passed by Camden Yards, it looks like a little preseason work is going on here as well.
And as I rode out of Camden Yards on Eutaw Street (it has been turned into a pedestrian only road through the Stadium), I caught the Bromo-Seltzer Tower in all of it's early evening glory. Once the HQ of the Bromo-Seltzer corporation, it has now been renovated into live/work space for artists. Each floor is about 900 square feet. It used to have a giant, rotating Bromo-Seltzer bottle on the top, but it was long gone when the renovation happened.
Tomorrow is supposed to be another great day, so I am going to try and get out again.
