In a sign of the growing influence of Baltimore's bicyclists, Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake will sign two bills Friday intended to promote safety on two wheels in the city. One of the measures, which recently cleared the City Council, would require the use of bicycle-safe storm grates on any new roads in the city. The other would increase the fine for motorists who park in bicycle lanes. The council passed both measures after hearings in which dozens of advocates showed up to urge tougher measures to make the city more bicycle-friendly.
