Many of us know Bob Moore of Baltimore City. He is a loooooong time member of the Baltimore Bicycling Club, a former member of the Maryland Bike/Ped Advisory Committee, and currently serves on the Mayor's Bicycle Advisory Committee, the Tour dem Parks Committee, and many others. He has dependably led BBC rides and is the prime mover behind Baltimore's Moonlight Madness Rides in support of the recently reopened Baltimore Hostel. He has been a huge part of the improvement of biking conditions in Baltimore.
Unfortunately, Bob was recently diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Like the trooper he is, he is undergoing treatment with his usual grace and good humor, but on Wednesday he was unable to attend the symposium because he was in Johns Hopkins Hospital with complications from the treatment.
Bob was being released from the hospital when I left him Thursday afternoon. His chemotherapy requires that he avoid contact with a lot of people, but I'm sure he would love to hear from his friends. His contact info can be found in the "yellow pages", the Bicycle and Pedestrian Directory you received at the symposium.
