- Best of Brew Comments: As Hopkins begins safe streets campaign, a pedestrian is struck (Baltimore Brew)
“On my first bike ride through Baltimore since my return from a year-long stint in DC, I was intentionally struck by a car. . . What angered me the most, however, wasn’t the uninterested police officers, but the pedestrian who walked up to me after the hit-and-run. She first asked me if I was alright, and then proceeded to tell me why it was my fault – that bikers shouldn’t be in the street, that they should be in the sidewalk (Of course, this is illegal). This made it very clear to me that Baltimore City has a cultural problem when it comes to biking.”

The best investment for a good retirement? Your health, says Dr. Errol Rushovich, an endocrinologist and internist at Mercy Medical Center in Baltimore. A cyclist who regularly commutes by bike between downtown Baltimore and his Pikesville home, Rushovich hopes his first cross-country ride inspires patients and colleagues to add regular exercise to their portfolios.
