House Bill 1197 - needs your support and testimony

[From Jon Morrison]

Del Carr introduced House Bill 1197 last week. <a href=""></a>;
I will be in Annapolis Thursday before and after the 3 foot passing hearing, seeking additional sponsors for HB 1197 - it would help immensely if you would reach out to your delegates and get the to support the bill, let them know I'll be stopping by (and let me know if they have a preferred time) and then let me know who I should see!

In the bill draft - [bracketed is proposed removal] BOLD is proposed addition to current law
11-104 - removes configuration restriction for 3 wheeled cycle
21-101 - permits bikes on shoulders
21-304 - allows bikes to pass on shoulders
21-501.1 - permits cyclists to use crosswalks
21-1205.1 - removes the mandatory use requirement for shoulders. [I can pass any info on to Jon]

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.
