Great shop. While visiting Baltimore for a few days, I went there to rent a bicycle. Employees (and other customers) were nice and really helpful. They gave me recommendations for places to visit, gave me bicycle maps and some tips regarding bike friendly routes I should use. The bike was in great condition and it had been all tuned up...

I am visiting Baltimore for a scientific meeting. I knew I would have a few hours open for a ride, and called Light Street Cycles the night before. All the bikes were rented out, and I was kicking myself for stupidly waiting until the last minute to reserve a bike. The next morning, I got a call from the owner,... More

Knowledgeable, friendly staff who know their city and their cycling. Penny, Trevor and Eddie were helpful and thorough in showing me about the bike and offered great advice on where and when to ride. Would definitely come back.

This was an awesome tour. Ms. Peggy did everything in her abilities to make the trip enjoyable for all 6 of us riding. Plus her historical knowledge of Baltimore was very educational and entertaining. You can tell Light Street Cycles take great pride in maintaining their rental equipment and selling quality bicycles and accessories. While we were getting ready, several... More

If you are in Baltimore you definitely need to book a bike tour with Penny and Light Street Cycles. The tour was an awesome addition to our girls weekend in Baltimore and a great way to see a lot of the city. We had a slight mixup with our reservation as we booked online and this seems to be a...

I am SO glad everything worked out for you. You were lots of fun to take around the city, and great sports to bike in that wind. I do wish the weather had been warmer, but that was out of everyone's hands. Hope your entire trip was fun. More

Had such a terrific time with Penny as our guide who quickly became a friend. My 26 year old son and I spent a wonderful day together enjoying being outside, taking in the sights, and as a bonus, getting a little exercise. Thank you for a great day!!!

When I travel on business, if I have a chance to get away for some stress relief, I always look for a bike ride. Even though it was March, the weather looked like it was going to cooperate. When I contacted Penny to ask about rentals, she was super helpful. We worked out the details, and my rental was confirmed.... More

You're very kind...I was happy to help! I sooo understand how therapeutic it is to ride a bike. Our shop is well-positioned for either getting around the city or getting away from it for awhile, and I'm glad you could take advantage of that to get out and have an enjoyable ride. More

Penny arranged a solo bike tour for me at 3 hrs notice!! Because I'd already been in town a few days and got to know it a little bit she mashed up 2 different parts of separate tours into one.

What a great way to see Baltimore. We took tour #4 which was historical and since we hadn't been on a bicycle for years most of the tour was on pretty level land.
