Howard County to get some money for bike lanes

by Andrew Metcalf, Columbia Patch

A cycling advocate had the county executive and much of the room laughing during his testimony. Bill Kelly did get to the point though, he said he has been testifying since 2007 to improve cyclist safety in the county, but nothing has been done.

"The bicycle master plan has been on your desk for two years," said Kelly, "and nothing has been done."

He asked Ulman to put $250,000 in the budget to begin implementing the plan that would add bike lanes and signage around the county.

"Please get that done," said Kelly, "we have virtually no bike lanes in Howard County."

"You made me smile," responded Ulman. "You're going to get some money in the budget."

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.
