New York vs Baltimore in bike safety

Baltimore had no cycling deaths in 2004

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.

I'm not surprised. I cycled through a large portion of NYC while on tour in May, and I ride to work in Baltimore 5-6 days a week. It's a world of difference; It seems to me that cyclists are just so uncommon in Baltimore motorists don't have experience dealing with us. I'd be interested to see how Philly stacks up against these two, with its broad network of bike lanes.
