    Went to school in Philly some 20+ years ago. I was shocked (pleasantly) when I saw recently how much biking infrastructure there is now as opposed to then. Kudos to them. The wide gulf between what can be done and what Baltimore HAS done is even more apparent. This looks like biking heaven!

    I was part of the Philly bike tour yesterday (Kudos to our gracious Philly hosts!). I have to say, I felt safer on the streets of downtown Philly than I do on some of the streets around my home in Elizabethtown, PA and in Lancaster. Clearly designated paths and well marked corridors makes a huge difference. I’m hopeful and committed to helping Lancaster achieve a similar level of urban bike-ability!

    There is a lot happening in Philadelphia in way of bikes. Philly Pumptrack is almost open, Bike Share PHL next summer, and monthly Full Moon and Kidical Mass Rides. Also Philly Cyclists writing about their experiences here
