Just the promise of the Towson Bike Beltway was apparently enough for Livability.com to rank Towson as the 42nd most livable mid-size city in the country. Now, the ambitious project, two years in the making, is completed and ready for cyclists.

According to the Baltimore Sun, the loop hits the shopping district, both Towson University and Goucher, and the city’s government center. The Towson Bike Beltway is patched together from a mix of “dedicated bike lanes where possible, bike lanes next to parking lanes and routes that are not marked but have signage to remind drivers to share the road with bicyclists.”

And this is only the beginning for the Age of the Bicycle in Towson. New bike routes that connect to the beltway are planned for next year, and a bill that passed the Baltimore County Council last summer requires that new development projects in the city devote a portion of their parking space to bicycles.
