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.

July 26, 2006 NEWS UPDATE--PLANNING BOARD ADOPTS PLAN The Baltimore County Planning Board voted to approve the Eastern County Pedestrian and Bicycle Access Plan, with amendments, after the public hearing held on July 20, 2006. While attendence at the public hearing was light, all comments supported adoption of the plan. The Planning Office had proposed amendments to the plan based on citizen comments received prior to the hearing. The amendments clarified the role of an advisory committee to oversee the plan's implementation. The committee will have the ability to adjust the types of facility improvements, funding sources and scheduling as appropriate to meet community needs and to take advantage of opportunities to combine projects. The committee will also consider the recommendations of adopted local area community plans, and undertake a more detailed review of each proposal before implementation. The next step is adoption of the amended plan by the Baltimore County Council. It is anticipated that the Council will schedule its public hearing on the plan in September. For more information, please contact me at 410-887-3521 or Thanks to all for your continued interest and support. --- . . .o . . /L =()>()
