Glad to see a school in Columbia was encouraging children to be active with Bike to School Day ("Cradlerock gets rolling with Bike To School Day," May 20 ), but where in the world was that girl's bike helmet? A bike helmet is a necessary accessory to keep children safe! Alexandra Bessent, Towson

It began with a bathroom renovation and ended with a toilet race Saturday at Hampdenfest. Lisa Harbin and Bob Atkinson redid a bathroom in their Baltimore house this year, and what else could they do with their old toilet but mount it on a board between two bikes and roll it down Chestnut Street with crowds cheering and the toilet paper rolls on their bike swirling. With perfect late September weather and crowds that filled The Avenue for blocks, Hampdenfest went on a week later than usual but with fun, food and everything quintessentially Hampden.

The Aberdeen Police Department and the Harford County Municipal Fraternal Order of Police, Lodge 128 collaborated to buy four new Smith and Wesson police mountain patrol bicycles for city police.

Officers on bike patrol handle a variety of calls for service and enforce all local and state laws while their high visibility provides for a safer environment.

Baltimore County has listened to "spokes-persons" who pushed for designated bicycle routes in and around Towson, and on Wednesday county officials and bicyclists celebrated the opening of a 4.23-mile Bike Beltway. Cyclists joined County Executive Kevin Kamenetz for an inaugural trip around the network, which loops around central Towson, passing Towson's shopping district, government center, two universities, Towson High School and numerous residential neighborhoods.

I find it horrible that dirt bike riders in the city are allowed to get away with the things they get away with ("Dirt bikers no victims of racism," April 29). As an average citizen, I would be ticketed in a minute for speeding, driving in between cars, running red lights, etc. But these riders do whatever they want, and I've seen police officers sitting in their cars letting it happen. I can tell you right now, if they ever tried to surround my car, I would barrel them over fearing for my life.

Despite the Shakespearean rhetoric of Michael Hill's recent commentary ("Fans crave what cheating provides," Jan. 25), no quarter should be granted to Lance Armstrong who, for over a decade, willfully and systematically lied, cheated, and thumbed his nose at the basic tenets of ethical human behavior. Unfortunately, Mr. Hill's commentary promulgates the message of our country's increasingly influential sports and entertainment consortium which suggests that the primary role for the masses is to watch and entertained by a small troop of elite athletes.

Cycling has long been promoted as an activity with the potential to improve community wellness through its health benefits and its ability to reduce traffic congestion and air pollution. Monday through Friday, rain or shine, I ride my bike from my apartment in the Tuscany-Canterbury neighborhood in North Baltimore to school at the Johns Hopkins medical campus in the Middle East neighborhood, where I am working on a master's degree in public health. Riding a bicycle is a liberating experience that you can do it at any age and almost anywhere.

I find it unbelievable that after 50 kids steal dozens of bikes, the story quickly drops off the front page ( "Bike thefts curb any optimism about city," June 3). Who are these kids? Where are the parents? Do the kids or the parents know right from wrong? There's something seriously wrong in Baltimore, and a rally or prayer vigil is unlikely to solve this problem.

Cathy Teodosio, a 55-year-old special education teacher, has been biking in fundraising events for more than two decades, but next weekend's Ride to Conquer Cancer will be especially personal for her. In April 2013, her father, Joseph Teodosio, was diagnosed with kidney cancer. Soon after moving from Connecticut to Fells Point in October, she heard about the event - which benefits Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center, Sibley Memorial and Suburban Hospitals. "It took several months with the move and his recovery for me to actually sign up for something like this, but I knew I had to do it," Cathy Teodosio said.

The state has awarded more than $2 million in grants to improve bike paths across Maryland, including more than $80,000 to better connect West Baltimore with downtown. The new funding for the state's Bikeways Program was announced Friday by the Maryland Department of Transportation, which administers the program aimed at encouraging biking to work, school and other activities. "Establishing a modern transportation system is more than building roadways, runways and railways," Gov. Martin O'Malley said in a statement.

Visitors, employees and neighbors of BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport now have a new option for enjoying the 12.5-mile trail that loops around the airport's Anne Arundel County property. The Boston-based bikeshare company Zagster, working with BWI, has installed a dock for 10 of its bicycles outside the airport's international terminal, near the light rail station. They are available for rental for $5 a day. Long-term passes for regular use cost $15 a month or $50 a year. Officials envision the bikes being used by airport travelers with time to kill and an urge to get outside, employees looking for a bit of exercise on a break or after work, and neighbors looking to take better advantage of the trail.

I am writing in response to an article posted in the Sunday June 20 edition of the Baltimore Sun. The article was brief, but spoke of the recent misfortune of Jenna Bush Hager and her husband as they had their bicycles stolen out of their garage from their home in Federal Hill ("Two bikes are stolen from Jenna Bush Hager's garage"). I would like to be very clear up front and say that I am sorry for their loss, and this is not a letter criticizing them, their father's politics, or anything personal in nature whatsoever.

This is the story of Stewart "Stu" McCullouch III , part-time Rodgers Forge resident, retired Air Force captain, aerospace engineer, triathlete and aspiring Ironman. Sounds intimidating, but truly, if you met him you would never know most of these accomplishments because boasting doesn't suit his character. You would simply think him the most jovial, salt-of-the-earth man you ever met. And maybe you did meet him during his annual part-time residency on Stanmore Road where he would stay with his daughter.
