Illegal Bike Maneuver?

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

<a href=""></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!

Multi-use trails

Biking in Maryland<img width="160" height="101" align="left" src="" alt=""><img width="90" height="120" align="right" src="" alt="">Usually I just throw away the Examiner that lands on my doorstep every morning, but I was thumbing through it today and I came upon this editorial about the new Cross County Trail in Fairfax:

It's generally positive, but what's strange is the closing: &quot;The Washington area will soon become a must-see destination for hikers and bikers all over the world. Just remember that hiking trails are recreational amenities - not major commuter routes.&quot;

It seems like an incomplete thought, but what are they getting at?

Everyday life as a cyclist

<img width="150" height="120" align="left" src="" alt="">Watch the following video to see the type of harassment that cyclist experience all too often. The highlight is an SUV who refuses to give up an inch of road for a cyclist even though there are no oncoming cars. So not only does the SUV pass the cyclists recklessly close the SUV has to blow the horn all the way to demonstrate that roads are for SUVs and bikes should stay in the garage where they belong.
