Stolen bikes

Hi all -

Several very expensive bikes have been stolen from my store. Please look out for them. I am offering a reward for the return of each and any of them.

I am especially interested in catching the thief.

If anyone knows of someone working on bikes and installing high end parts, please let me know, as the bikes may be parted out.

101 (ab)uses of a car

From a discussion group: On these winter rides I continue to be disgusted by the number of Mommy's that are sitting in their Suburban's, Expedition's, LX- 470's, Rover's, and Volvo's with their engines running, talking on the phone or reading a book, spewing emissions into the environment at the head of their few block deep neighborhoods waiting for little Biff and Muffy to get off the school bus. What is wrong with these people is a clear example of what is wrong with much of America.

Fair Share for Safety

<img width="124" height="120" align="left" src="http://www.baltimorespokes.org/images/articles/20060120174512538_1.gif" alt="">While bicyclists and pedestrians are major users of our roads and sidewalks, states do little to protect their safety in the same way that they do for drivers. A Fair Share for Safety program would ensure that transportation systems spend federal money dedicated to safety programs to protect bicyclists and pedestrians as well as automobile users.

Less Pollution on City Sidewalks than Streets

Health & Environment<img width="89" height="120" align="left" src="http://www.baltimorespokes.org/images/articles/20060117023547729_1.gif" alt="">&quot;On average, taxi passengers were exposed to more than 100,000 ultrafine particle counts per cubic centimeter. Bus travelers were exposed to just under 100,000 and people in cars about 40,000.&quot;


&quot;Pedestrians and bicyclists, meanwhile, were exposed to counts of just 5,000 and 8,000, respectively.&quot;

It's the Law in Maryland

  • Yield the Right-of-Way to Bicyclists.
  • Bicycles are treated as vehicles in Maryland.
  • Motorists must yield the right-of-way to bicyclists.
  • Do not attempt to share the lane with bicyclists.
  • If you are unable to safely pass them, reduce your speed, and follow the bicycle at a safe distance. Wait for a safe opportunity to pass, allowing adequate clearance, about three feet from the side of your vehicle, and return to your lane when you can clearly see the bicyclist in your rear view mirror.
  • A bicycle is not restricted to the right side of the road.
  • Share the road and do not use your horn. The bicyclist can usually hear an approaching vehicle and loud noises can startle the bicyclist and may cause an accident.

    Illegal Bike Maneuver?

    Biking in BaltimoreToday, 12/28/2005, I was stopped by a state patrol officer for performing this maneuver:

    <a href="http://tinyurl.com/8sca9">http://tinyurl.com/8sca9</a>;

    For 2 years, until they started doing roadwork in the area, I've been riding this section to get to Dundalk from Essex. Now, I'm told that I was on I-695 for a portion of it, and of course, as we all know, peds and bikes are prohibited.

    I plead ignorance! I know--no excuse.

    But, there's got to be a better way other than having to cut through Eastpoint Mall!
