12 O’Clock Boys

12 o'clock boys riding dirt bikes in Baltimore

Love ’em or hate ’em, 12 o’clock boys are a visible and raucous presence on Baltimore streets. Zipping through traffic on dirt bikes and four wheelers, front wheels up in the air, playing cat-and-mouse with police.

The illegal dirt bike riding scene was the subject of Lotfy Nathan’s 2014 documentary 12 O’Clock Boys, which focuses on an aspiring rider, Pug, as he navigates his way on Baltimore streets and into the group of renegade riders.
