After the B’more Bikes post about stadium parking last week, the Stadium Authority has weighed in (emphasis my own):
Thank you so much for your comments and suggestions. The Maryland Stadium Authority is committed to providing safe and secure sites for our fans and park visitors to lock their bikes.
This has been an evolving process as usage has increased. And yes, our game day personnel has not always been familiar with our designated rack locations — particularly at M&T Bank Stadium.
With the opening of the bridge over the tracks east of M&T Bank Stadium for daily use, the Gwynns Falls Trail now passes through our complex. This has encouraged more use, as has the large trail marker on the Ostend/Warner entrance to the complex.
Before every stadium event at M&T, game day personnel are advised where the bike station is located so they can direct cyclists to it. This includes MSA Security, the SAFE management, and Aramark catering staff. They are aware it is in the southwest corner of the complex, between gates B and C, along the Gwynns Falls Trail. This is also where the guard station is located, to provide even greater security.
As for Oriole Park, we have moved bike racks to a more convenient (and supervised) entrance to the park — at Camden and Eutaw. As Nate noted, the one rack we put there earlier in the season can no longer accommodate the number of cycling fans, so we added a second one this week.
On the east side of the Warehouse in front of Dempseys there are permanent racks affixed to the sidewalk. At the MARC station, new racks will be added soon (although they will not have the supervision of the racks on our campus.)
Hope this answers some of your questions. Thank you again for giving us ideas how we can better serve you.
