We are in the middle of Bike to Work Week, and those who celebrate such things will be celebrating Bike to Work Day on Friday. There are several gatherings to mark the occasion in the Central Maryland area. To find out what’s changed on Maryland’s roads for bicyclists since Bike to Work Day 2009, Sheilah talks to Nate Evans, Baltimore’s Bike and Pedestrian Planner; and Carol Silldorff, Executive Director of One Less Car.

    Sheilah,

    I rarely write media outlets to thank them for stories, but I wanted to take time today to express my appreciation for your story on Bike-to-Work week. I cannot claim the label of “biker” just yet. I purchased a bike last year with the hope of using it to commute to work to gain the benefit of getting daily exercise without having to carve out a specific time in my day for it. However, the route from my home to work is brutal due to the disconnected network of bike paths and bike-unfriendly streets that connect the west and central parts of the city (i.e., Hunting Ridge to JHU)– thanks, Nate, for helping me see that! For now, I ride in the neighborhoods immediately around my home. Nevertheless, I try to keep up with efforts to encourage and improve biking in Baltimore and the state. Stories like the one this morning help to increase awareness of the benefits of biking and the challenges to making it a viable commuting option here. Many thanks to you, Nate, and One Less Car for your efforts.
