To Conserve Gas, President Calls for Less Driving

Health & EnvironmentThis New York Times article starts out like it might lead to promoting more cycling but instead it seems to be setting the stage to invade environmental objections to get more oil and natural gas.

The article hints at but does not really get to the point about how fuel prices are related to economic growth and not just here but world wide.

So while the president may recommend driving less and having less money to spend on other things besides gas. I recommend ride more, do more fun things by bike and have money to buy the things you like.

Abandoned Pennsylvania Turnpike needs your help

<img width="160" height="103" align="left" src="http://www.baltimorespokes.org/images/articles/20051001213817635_1.jpg" alt="">This is the abandoned 8 miles of the Pennsylvania Turnpike that is being turned into a bike trail that was written about in the Washington Post a couple of weeks ago.

Everyone has ridden Rails to Trails but this is completely different.

This trail puts you in a time and place that never existed. Post Apocalyptic America. You ride on a broken, 4 lane highway with the forest crushing in on both sides. Then you get to the abandoned tunnels. Is this the past of the future? This is the only abandoned Interstate turned into bike trail anywhere.

We need your help!

We have just gotten our web site up and are looking for members and volunteers to help develop the trail. The Friends of Pike 2 Bike ask that you pass on our web address to your biking friends and that you consider joining the most unique and weird bike trail anywhere. The benefits are worth the cost.

Baltimore County Planning Develops Interactive Bike Maps

The Draft Eastern County Pedestrian and Bicycle Access Plan was developed by an advisory Action Committee composed of local citizens, elected officials and government staff. Taking input from citizens who live, work and play in the area, the Action Committee's plan identifies future pedestrian and bicycle improvements. The plan, which covers the Fifth, Sixth and Seventh Council Districts, is the first phase of what will eventually be a County-wide plan.

Baltimore County Update

<img width="123" height="113" align="left" src="http://www.baltimorespokes.org/images/articles/2005092515221021_1.jpg" alt="">You made an impression! To quote one clerk &quot;We did not know this was an issue till we started getting e-mails.&quot; This statement is what the campaign was about. Thanks to you accommodating cyclists as legitimate road users is now an issue and concern and hopefully not just in Baltimore County but in the surrounding metropolitan counties as well.
