Bike safety advocates push 2 bills, get frosty reception in Maryland General Assembly

[B' Spokes: This is way we need to connect with those that represent us.]
By Ashley Halsey III, Washington Post

“I’m a little shell-shocked that there are so many bike bills,” said Del. James E. Malone Jr. (D-Baltimore-Howard counties), who chaired the hearing before the House Environmental Matters Committee. “This year it’s four feet, and next year it’s five feet, and before you know it the cars are on the shoulders and the bikes are on the road.”

Malone said many cyclists he observes “don’t pay any attention to the rules of the road.” [Is he including us not riding far right as possible on a lane too narrow to share as State highways asserted? Confusion over what the rules are for cyclists and signaling out cyclists as the sole source scofflaw behavior on our roads are a big problem here.]

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.
