I testified at the Takoma Park hearing on 410. The Council chose the option that would allow a future bike lane or path. But one Council member commented that he thought that would never happen.

I was amazed at the vitriol of some residents that a bike lane would be created and how it wasn't needed. And it wasn't just about converting the bike lane to a car lane, as Council Member Seth Grimes commented is probably illegal under Maryland law. It was really a hatred of bicycles by people cloaking themselves in the flag of historic preservation.

If there are other TP readers of WashCycle, we need to lean on the state to paint sharrows and put up signs for now, and create a separate lane in the future.
