We need protected cycletracks in every part of this city. I ride in every part of this city, and I know that just getting between East and West Baltimore is death-defying. The arteries that make life easy for cars—I-83, MLK Jr. Boulevard, Route 40—make it deadly for the rest of us trying to cross them or ride by their on-ramps. Our car-centered culture has prioritized those needs over all others, and too many pay the price. I am grateful for the Maryland/Cathedral cycletrack, and grateful that it is spurring many more folks to ask why we don't have these everywhere. The answers are complicated, but they aren't that only white folks live, work, or ride along that cycletrack, and it isn't that the city's bicycle advocacy group doesn't care about people who live in the Black Butterfly. We can't keep planning cycletracks for a decade, cobbling together funding from various grants, and hoping our streets are due for repaving soon. We have to recognize that everyone—wherever we live and however we travel—deserves safe routes, and build our political imagination around that.
