Want an intensive training session or some chill time on the mat? Charm City Yoga offers it all this summer, from 200 hour intensive sessions to laid back beginner classes. Grab a mat and lose the shoes and get ready for some zen--some of the classes are outside!
Ever felt like pulling on a pair of Sperry's and spinning a captain's wheel, maybe after watching Wolf of Wall Street? Well, the Downtown Sailing Center doesn't have any cash or bikini clad women for you, but they do offer summer classes to teach you the basics of sailing, knots, nautical terms, and more. You can move onto more advanced classes, or take your kids out too.
The riders of the White Rose Motorcycle club seem like medieval knights atop thier steeds, chartered in York County and forever there to sweep the streets--and the hills, of course. They're famous for their "hill-climbs", which is more reminiscint of climbing a dirt filled 300-foot ski slope without the lift, where they raise money for the club and the community. They have a big list of events on their calendar this summer for amateaurs and professionals alike, starting off with an Observed Trials 40th Anniversary on May 3rd and 4th, their first hill climb on the first of June, a York Revolution Bike Night on August 9th, and a lot more white rose clad biking glory. Check out their site for more.
Strap on your sneakers for an out-and-back 13.1 miles for victims of domestic violence at the House of Ruth in this annual race hosted by the Maryland Athletic Club. The course will be wooded and beautiful, and it's about a 45 minute drive from Baltimore to Freeland where it's hosted. A lot of the crazies who do these races do it for fun, so why not run for a good cause?
Commemorate all the free, open nature trails across the country in Baltimore's own backyard for a guided historic walking tour of Druid Hill Park. The park is 745 acres, and though it won't put you in the middle of the wilderness or anything, it'll offer some beautiful views, historical information and people to meet.
Pretend you're actually a member of the cast of the Knight's Tale and grab a lance and get ready for some medieval excitement--oh, wait no, you won't be jousting any actual humans. You'll be trying to capture some miniature rings while riding the horse with your lance, like the training sequence in the movie. Maybe you'll get to try on people somewhere else, if you find a time machine.
Hunks of metal on wheels will be smashing into eachother for your entertainment, almost like battle-bots or medieval gladiators. We'd suggest sitting sideline with some popcorn or whatever it is demo derby fans eat rather than in the cars themselves.
Baltimoreans hop on bikes for the 12th annual tour of the parks on wheels. Get a scenic ride-by view of Peterson Park, Druid Hill, Herring Run, and more. You have a choice of four routes, depending on how ambiitious your quads are feeling that day varying in distance and intensity. A barbecue awaits your charriot's return, and all proceeds will go to the parks and cycling groups of the city. It's better than the stationary at the gym, wouldn't you say?
The rolling hills of Howard County might be the perfect place for an amibitous young triathlete to begin their career, with a .62 mile swim, a 16 mile bike, and 3.4 mile run. The event is in commemoration of serive heroes, including first responders, military heroes, volunteers and ordinary people who do heroic things. Finishing this race can be a heroic act in itself, and prize money will suppot charities.
Okay, so the Ravens might have had an off year coming off their Superbowl win, but we heard it's an "every other" year thing. Don that purple and gold and get ready to be just as wildly enthusiastic as you were in the streets when they won it all. Or at least get a preview before the real season starts.
The third annual sailing competition hits Annapolis featuring displays of popular sailboats and shopping for all of your boating needs. The three day event gives guests the time to explore and check out sailing boats from around the country.
Ladies are already pulling out their pastel wide-brimmed sun hats while the men are getting ready to hoot and holler at horses clutching a beer mug. If we were betting men and women, we'd never leave the race-track, but the running of the Preakness, one of the three races in the crown for the Kentucky Derby, is a must see. The Infeild Fest always offers big names for entertainment, this year including The Counting Crows, Lorde and many more to be named. Try not to get too sunburned; that's a party foul.
