Another barrier to cycling hits the dust

Bike LawsThanks to the efforts of One Less Car, Baltimore Bicycling Club, Baltimore Spokes and people like you who got involved, Maryland's law that prohibited cyclists on all toll bridges and ramps has been changed to allow the Chairman of MdTA to authorize toll bridges for bike/ped use. Governor Martian O'Malley signed this into law on 4/24 and will take effect in October of this year.

PLEASE do not head across the Bay Bridge or through the Harbor Tunnel on your Schwinn claiming this new law as justification. It is still prohibited. Instead, participate fully in the public input to future construction and rehab projects to make them bike/ped accessible.[Read comment for more details.]

Take Back the Tap

Health & Environment Take Back the Tap Pledge Did you know...
  • Bottled water is not safer than tap water? In fact, the federal government requires far more rigorous and frequent safety testing and monitoring of municipal drinking water.
  • Bottled water is thousands of times more expensive than tap water? Compare $0.002 per gallon for most tap water to a range of $0.89 to $8.26 per gallon for bottled waters.
  • Bottled water creates mountains of needless garbage and contributes to other environmental problems?
American consumers drink more bottled water every year, in part because they think it is somehow safer or better than tap water. They collectively spend hundreds or thousands of dollars more per gallon for water in a plastic bottle than they would for the H20 flowing from their taps.

Learn about the various problems with bottled water and why you should switch to tap water. Read our new report, Take Back the Tap: Why Choosing Tap Water over Bottled Water is Better for Your Health, Your Pocketbook, and the Environment.
