B' Spokes: Note: Of that $12 million available Maryland has been spending near zilch of Federal funds. To Maryland's credit they have been spending their own money on bicycling... roughly $3 million a year, starting this year.
Something does not seem right especially when you consider the National average of % bike/ped fatalities is 14% vs. Maryland's 22.7% .
