Our mission is to promote bicycling, increase safety, improve conditions, and provide a voice for bicyclists in Maryland.
Bike Maryland is the nonprofit organization that has been instrumental in improving bicycling conditions and protecting the rights of bicyclists across Maryland. We are the only organization actively promoting pro-bike legislation on the state level in Maryland. We improve conditions on the county and city level too. Thanks to the support of our members and sponsors, what we've accomplished and continue to do is truly remarkable:
- Passage of six state pro-bike bills in the last two years
- Passage of the three foot rule
- Passage of the criminal negligence/manslaughter bill - now there are higher penalties and potential jail time for drivers who cause fatalities
- Working with multiple communities, businesses and universities to promote a Bike Friendly Maryland
- Bus racks on MTA buses
- and more!!
