I hope everyone has seen the SHARE the ROAD signs up on the Columbia tri route and on Carrs Mill Rd that Bicycling Advocates encouraged the county to install. Bicycling Advocates also hopes to do *cyclists education*.
Our thinking is the more polite cyclists in Howard county are to motorists the more influence we will have on motorists to be considerate of us. In the next couple months leading up to the Iron Girl triathlon, the Princeton Sports Tues night ride has many newbie inexperienced cyclists. It's a very large ride with many cyclists. To help educate them on how to bike safely and courteously, we are looking for a few VOLUNTEER ROAD MARSHALS to bike along with them on the Tues night ride from Princeton Sports.
Please help these new cyclists learn how to bike safely and do a nice ride too!!!! Princeton plans to eventually provide *yellow jerseys* to road marshals.
If you are interested in being an occasional road marshal, please contact Mike Carney (Mcarney "at" cfmortgagecorp.com). He is coordinating volunteer road marshals. We only need a couple each week. Thanks again for all your interest in helping bicycling in Howard County!
