Bicycling on the Boardwalk is more popular than ever in Ocean City, Maryland.

For as long as I can remember, the cutoff time for riding bicycles on the boardwalk has been 10 in the morning during the summer season. This summer, the City Council has extended the bicycling hours until 11 a.m. weekdays. The cutoff hour for bicycles on the boardwalk remains at 10 a.m. on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays.

The starting time for the boardwalk trams has been pushed back to 11 a.m. weekdays.

The bike riders above were enjoying the ocean air early Monday morning, June 22, the second day of official summer. You’ll also see a lot of joggers on the Boardwalk in the morning.

Most of Ocean City’s main roads have bicycle lanes, which can be used 24 hours a day. Many of the resort’s seasonal workers use bicycles to get to and from work.

You can bring your own bike to Ocean City with you, but most people just rent a bicycle (or an assortment of other pedal-powered contraptions) at a shop on the Boardwalk or Baltimore Avenue. — Bernie
