Jack Cochrane of MoBike, the Montgomery Bicycle Advocates, weighed in on the new road design. He believes we can do better and notes that, “at most a third of the business streets in the White Flint Sector Plan will have any sort of bike accommodations.” He also points out the potential conflicts this may cause : “Without bike accommodations, cyclists will either have to ride single file with cars or use the right lane of a busy multi-lane street (or use the sidewalk). Lack of bike accommodations will deter the type of cyclist we need to attract if we want to increase bicycle mode share. Without special accommodations, less aggressive riders will ride on the sidewalk or not at all.”
