About two dozen bicyclists called for the protected bike lane on Roland Avenue in Baltimore to remain in its current configuration in a “bike-in” demonstration Monday morning. (Jerry Jackson/Baltimore Sun video)
Whether you agree or disagree with the protected bike lane, I think we can all agree that the money that is being spent in Roland Park to adjust and readjust the lanes is a prime example of misplaced priorities. As I bike up and down Roland Avenue and watch all the changes, I can't help but wonder: in what other neighborhood do residents get any "buffer" between travel lanes and their personal vehicles? None that I can think of.
