Thanks Carl.  I sent in a request to repair.  Others should also email request.  Squeaky wheel gets the road repaired.

Plan to make Columbia, county highways more pedestrian-friendly

"Last but not least, Baltimore County elected officals will need calls from their constituents to implement the eastern and western side bicycle plans and make them more balanced with improved on road accomodation. "

Well said Jeff.  Seems Baltimore County just lost their bike/ped planner.  Apparently his grant was not renewed.  I was so happy to see that we finally had a real bike planner but it did not last.  Hopefully the Baltimore Bike Alliance can fill the void.  Charlie

Recent road work on the shoulder of eastbound Wilkens prior to 695 ramp left a pothole.  It's not really a pothole but a water main cover that sunk. It's hard to see, near the road edge. It could easily cause an endo or taco a wheel.  I will try and contact Baltimore County or state. Anyone know who maintains this road?

I thought some folks might be interested in this.  Local frame builders Chris Bishop, John Hollands, Tommy Nash, and Tom Palermo will be on hand to show off their artisan hand-crafted bicycle frames and provide a brazing demonstration at 3pm Saturday.
Also there's Bike parking @ UB plaza.

I thought I would bump this to remind folks of the bike valet parking this weekend at Artscape.  The parking will be at the UB Plaza on the corner of Maryland Ave.and Mt Royal Ave.

Hope many of you folks can take advantage of this offer.  Thanks, Charlie

Hey folks: There will be bike valet parking at Baltimore Artscape this year. If you have ever been to Artscape you know what a pain parking a car can be. You will be able to leave your bike in a safe environment. We are also looking for volunteers to help. Below is the info I received. Hope many of you can take advantage of this service. Thanks Charlie

"Artscape 2010 is fast approaching! Last year we had over 700 BIKES parked at the UB Plaza. This year, we expect even more!
Let’s build on last year’s success and make 2010 even better!

All volunteers must be 18 years of age or older and receive free parking, cool thank you gifts, access to the air-conditioned volunteer "lounge" and snacks. Plus, you get to hang out with other cyclists, make sure their rides don't get stolen and promote the growing bike community in Baltimore

Nate Evans the new Baltimore Bike Planner has been very active.  It seems he has gotten approval for Baltimore’s first bike boulevard, Guilford road. 
Here’s his blog

He is seeking other possible routes that can be made into bike boulevards.  I live on the westside but commute south towards DC.  Does anyone commute from the westside to downtown?  Any route suggestions?  Post them to his blog. I would like to Frederick rd turned into one but feel that it doesn’t quite fit the criteria. 
  What about the eastside?  I don’t think Eastern Ave. fits the requirements either. Charlie
