Baltimore gains new League Certified Instructors

Biking in Baltimoreimage

B' Spokes: I liked this bit:
Having been a cyclist for over 20 years (most as a professional racer), and coaching for 16 of those 20, I thought I knew it all. But evidently I was wrong! I was humbled when I realized just because I can ride a bike, it doesn't mean I can effectively teach the League of American Bicyclist principles or the rules of the road...


Seriously, if you ever have an opportunity to learn from one of these individuals, please do so.

Police are currently looking for a silver Dodge Stratus

Biking in BaltimoreBaltimore City Police are reporting two robberies involving abductions in Roland Park.

Police say a woman was forced into a car, driven to an ATM machine and told to withdraw money. In another incident a man riding a bicycle was hit by a suspect's vehicle, then forced in the car and robbed. No serious injuries were reported.

Police are currently looking for a silver Dodge Stratus occupied by three suspects in connection with the robberies. Anyone with information is urged to call police.

Bike Lane Failure Runs Down St. Paul St.

Biking in BaltimoreOnce again Baltimore Velo has an excellent post: <a href="http://baltimorevelo.com/2012/10/bike-lane-failure-runs-down-st-paul-st/">http://baltimorevelo.com/2012/10/bike-lane-failure-runs-down-st-paul-st/</a>;
I applied their use of both complements and rational criticisms. A job well done!

To which I'll add two comments:

I am miffed the city has ignored my request to put the bike lanes on the left side of St. Paul. In NYC it is standard practice on one way streets to put the bike lanes on the left side. Parked car doors opening into the bike lane are fewer and if you ride the stripe of the bike lane closer to traffic, drivers know where the left side of their big honking SUV is a lot better then they know where the right side is.

Also safety advice tells cyclists to ride at least 3-4 feet from parked cars (measured from outside of your handlebars.) So if a car is parked against the right edge of the bike lane that puts your tire outside the bike lane or at best right on the stripe.

Conclusion: I agree with Baltimore Velo, no bike lane would be better here then what they put in.
