It's a fun tour and a beautiful ride. I love B'more that early in the morning.
They tend to use mostly the same route each year. Exception was 2001 when high security and bridge construction kept us out of Fort McHenry.
Show and go style. Starts at Rash Field, around the harbor, Fells Point, out on Boston and Holabird, zigzags to Paterson Park, through Little Italy, back around the harbor, Otterbein and Federal Hill (around the park) Riverside Park, out to the Fort, around Locust Point and back to Rash.
The tour doesn't have a lot of mileage, so I like to ride the entire route twice. Start early and do the first loop twice, then work on the second loop.
