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.
The Maryland Department of Transportation (MDOT) recently completed an updated Maryland Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan. The Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan establishes a 20-year vision to support cycling and walking as modes of transportation in Maryland.
