Baltimore Critical Mass Bike Ride

Bike Critical MassThe next Critical Mass is 10/29. Let's keep the momentum for bicycles going! Last September's ride was arguably the best ever. Let's see if we can top it again with our annual Halloween bike vibe.

As always, CM meets near Charles and Redwood streets. We start to gather at 5:30 p.m. We typically start a little after 6:00 p.m.

btw, Beth W. has made a pretty kick-ass flyer. Interested parties should contact her to get copies of it to spread around town.

Also, on the flyer she lists a "surprise destination" and a "11 p.m. dance masquerade". Sounds pretty mysterious. I'm sure the people who are planning these CM-related activities could use some more help putting it all together. So, don't be shy lending a hand.

finally, don't forget the 'Reclaim the Streets' event coming on election day (Nov. 2). It should be a good time for all.

cheers, Scott

Video cameos about bike advocacy

Biking in BaltimoreEveryone

I am getting people to make statements about bike advocacy to a video camera
at the light street cycle shop. The end result should be a series of statements by a large and
extremely varied group of people strung together to impress our city
representatives as to the support bicycle issues have.

nyone interested in giving a \"testimonial\" is welcome to do so.

I haven\'t made the necessary appointments with the city yet, but that is
usually not as hard or time consuming as gathering statements.

All are welcome to express intelligible, truthful, and sincere opinions on
this issue...............

City Council hearing on bike laws

Bike LawsI went to the City Council hearing today. The sponsor of the bill, Lisa Stancil was there and Melvin Stukes chaired the hearing. About 5 of us spoke. I think that showing up for the hearing will not be as important in the long run as writing to the council afterwards.
