After watching this video I have to ask "Where is Maryland's information for drivers on sharing the road with cyclists?" and "Where is State sponsored cyclists education classes in the Balto metro area?" With the latter at least the Baltimore Bicycling Club has a free class every May. And with the former, Maryland does have something standing on the side lines, though notably fails to address the common right hook and is not mainstreamed into the Drivers' Manual and other instructional aids. Something else to file away under News you will not see in Maryland.
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. ( http://www.cdc.gov/nccdphp/bb_nutrition/ ) 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.
