My first visit to Annapolis was electric. After learning about the city's assortment of battery-powered bicycles, cars and even boats, I was fully charged up and ready to go.

With a day on my own before two friends arrived, I decided to get an overview of the Maryland capital, better known for its harbor and the U.S. Naval Academy than for its alternative transportation options. As a longtime cyclist, I thought that jumping on a bicycle seemed the best option for a tour.
