Governor O’Malley's Cycle Maryland initiative is an effort to encourage more Marylanders to get out and ride, and to make bicycling a true transportation alternative. Cycling is a great way to connect to your community, support a cleaner environment, encourage a healthier lifestyle, reduce household transportation costs and enjoy Maryland's magnificent landscape.
Building on the success of Cycle Maryland events held throughout the summer of 2011, www.cycle.maryland.gov
provides a one-stop web portal for information about cycling infrastructure, plans, funding opportunities and events.
As part of the O’Malley-Brown Administration’s vision of building a true multi-modal transportation system, reimbursable grant funding is currently available to support local bicycle, pedestrian and trail projects through several funding programs.
The presentation slides from recent funding workshops is provided here with more information about funds available, project eligibility, program guidelines and more for each funding program: Funding Workshop Presentation
