One Less Car July Update

As a non-profit with a small staff we really appreciate help from our friends. This Summer is turning out to be a busy one for us. Our events schedule is a full one, with Cycle Across Maryland coming up at the end of this month and Tour du Port in early October. But we are also planning a transportation conference for March of next year. And then there are the summits that we are convening (the first was in June) with Baltimore area mass transit advocates. After that there is an effort to bring together statewide bicycle advocates in October. And let's not forget the daily grind of data input, answering phones, etc........

So, we need your help. If you are a professional person committed to our cause and any of the following fun-filled tasks is of interest to you, please email Richard Chambers at rchambers"at" Although we don't have money to offer you, we do reward good work with large amounts of gratitude and - if you do a really good job - free registrations to Tour du Port!

* Transportation Conference volunteer/Intern - 5-10 hours a week. Assist in the planning of OLC's sustainable transportation conference, set for March 2009. This means administrative work, as well as helping organize our contacts in the planning, public policy and health communities.

Like most people I live a hectic life and who has the time for much exercise? Thanks to xtracycle now I do. By using my bike for daily activities I can get things done and get an hour plus work out in 15 minutes extra of my time, not a bad deal and beats taking the extra time going to the gym. In case you are still having trouble being motivated; the National Center of Disease Control says that inactivity is the #2 killer in the United States just behind smoking. ( ) Get out there and start living life! I can carry home a full shopping cart of groceries, car pool two kids or just get lost in the great outdoors camping for a week. Well I got go, another outing this weekend.
