Stolen Bike

Biking in BaltimoreFrom: Amber Blake


My bike was stolen from the garage at the Baltimore Metropolitan Council. It is an electric blue Orbea, with silver writing. (Road Bike), it has a carbon fiber fork, black handle bar tape, Dura-Ace components.
If anyone sees it can you please contact me? It's not your run of the mill bike so it will be pretty easy to spot.

I have video footage of the guy stealing the bike, and he left a bike he rode in on with his prints all over it (unlocked) in the garage. The city police wont look at the footage (Bldg security put it on a flash drive for them), nor will they dust the bike he left for prints. The value of the bike makes the crime a felony (grand theft -bicycle).
Also, if anyone has any suggestions as to what other steps I should take please let me [us] know.

Worldwide Bicycle Accident Survey

Biking ElsewhereThe New York Cycle Club, a 1,600+ member organization, located in New York City, is conducting a worldwide bicycle accident survey. The results will be published as part of a cycling risk assessment study that will be made freely available to the public at the conclusion of the survey. It is for education and advocacy purposes. The survey contains dozens of data points and its design is streamlined to have folks get through the survey as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Please consider entering one or more accident survey responses. The more responses, the more meaningful the results will be. Thank you.

Thank you very much for your consideration.

Route to work?

Biking in BaltimoreHi. I'm moving to Baltimore from Chicago, where I currently have a 15 mile round trip commute.

In Baltimore, I will be working at JHU's medical campus, and sometimes at Bayview. I am considering living near the subway stations along Park Heights (e.g., Reistertown or Rogers metro stations), so that I can take the subway sometimes, but I would also like to bike sometimes as well. Is there a safe way to go from there to JHU if I'm traveling only in the daytime?
