Master Plan for Cyclists considerations


People often ask me how come Washington Metro area is doing more for cyclists then Baltimore. Hint number one: Bikes are not much of an issue here.

I guess I hang out with the wrong crowd or no one has attempted what I am about to attempt and that is making cycling an issue.

So if you are interested in making cycling an issue and joining me in uncharted territory...

Since Washington does have a higher population then Baltimore I calculated where we should be [s/b] using the ratio of populations and then our percentage of attainment of that figure:



# of bike lane miles


Approximately 5 miles - Fort Avenue, Kelly Avenue and on-street portion of Gwynns Falls Trail [s/b 17- 29%]

# of off road trail miles


Approximately 20 miles - Gwynns Falls Trail, Jones Falls Trail, Herring Run Trail [s/b 44- 45%]

# Bike Racks

Like most people I live a hectic life and who has the time for much exercise? Thanks to xtracycle now I do. By using my bike for daily activities I can get things done and get an hour plus work out in 15 minutes extra of my time, not a bad deal and beats taking the extra time going to the gym. In case you are still having trouble being motivated; the National Center of Disease Control says that inactivity is the #2 killer in the United States just behind smoking. ( ) Get out there and start living life! I can carry home a full shopping cart of groceries, car pool two kids or just get lost in the great outdoors camping for a week. Well I got go, another outing this weekend.
