I'm considering a job offer for Baltimore and am looking for a bit of insight on getting around.

My wife and I would much prefer not to have a car and the practicality of using Baltimore's mass transit seems less than ideal. So far Fells Point/Brewer Hill seems like the most walkable neighborhoods (mostly we want to be able to get groceries and some decent food without needing the bus/car), but I'm concerned about commuting to my office in downtown. Is it practical to do so by bike, perhaps one of these routes is OK?

Also, any suggestions on better neighborhoods (particularly along the light rail) are much welcome!

Google is not that bad in offering route advice in the city. All routes have some positive and negative things about them. I have a slight preference for using Gay St. to join the lower route with the upper one. And there are options for promenade and parking lot use to make the route a bit more pleasant.

I am moving to the area Friday, and would like to bike to work from Towson (York Road) to Hunt Valley (International Circle), if possible. A nice brisk 8 mile or so ride. Mr. Green

Try Google maps and click the bike icon for bicycle directions. I take Greenspring/Beaver Dam/... up to International Circle, how to get to that from York Road can be a bit tricky but doable from several route options.
