Well, we did it! Baltimore’s Ciclovia trajectory is back in motion.
There were occasional squalls and the sun almost poked through at about 2PM. One needed a jacket. Undaunted, at least 500 of us enjoyed the afternoon together. In the end, pure fun trumped the bad weather.
Thanks to the Police Dept. and Dept. of Transportation for making it safe for all of us. Thanks to our Baltimore Councilwomen Mary Pat Clarke and Sharon Green Middleton for joining us. Thanks to Caitlin Doolin and her DoT team for demo-ing the new electric bikes soon to be available to share throughout the City.Thanks to Joe Traill and Katie Gore for fixing innumerable bikes under the Joe’s Bike Shop tent. Thanks to Suzanne Frasier for updating the masses on the Roland Water Tower restoration project.
Above all, thanks to the merry band of volunteers who served one-hour shifts all up and down the three-mile course: Michael Marren, Charlie Wright, France Warner, Mary Magenta, Patrick Atwood, Dan Zywan, Megan Griffith, Tom McGilloway, Kate Kreamer, Evie Hersperger, Mary Page Michel, Richard Truelove, Caroline Wayner, Kathleen Talty, Liliana Manfredi, Chris Cortright, Andrea De Leon, Connor Cortright, Carson Cortright, Lydia Wilson, Kevin Kenny, Ellie Kenny, Chris McSherry and Elizabeth Leik.
It was a pleasure working with you all.
Shall we do it again? Send me your feedback and comments and I’ll pass them on.
Cheers to all of you and congratulations for making Ciclovia VI a great event.
There is a monopoly for faster Internet service in Baltimore. Cost and speed and lack of choice motivates this citywide campaign supported by the Roland Park Civic League. The campaign goal is the deployment of fast fiberoptic technology as has already occurred in many other cities. An adequate fiber network can then allow competition for the provision of Internet services. Backing the campaign does not commit you to purchasing any service but shows by our numbers, that there are sufficient residents who want choice in their Internet providers.
