One Less Car Got You Three Feet!  Support safe roads, safety legislation, equal rights for bikes, bike lanes, public transit, sidewalks for safe walking and more community initiatives by attending the Tour du Port and supporting One Less Car (OLC)!  ALL TdP proceeds and merchandise sales directly support these initiatives. We are your advocates. Your support helped OLC achieve the passage of SIX Maryland bills this year!  Click here to learn more about these bills, including the three foot rule bill, that requires three feet of distance between you and a passing vehicle.

Congratulations - It's Time to Celebrate! 

The League of American Bicyclists announced today that Baltimore was named a Bronze Level Bicycle Friendly Community! This award is presented only to communities with remarkable commitments to bicycling. One Less Car is very proud of this announcement!  A huge pat on the back goes out to Nate Evans, Baltimore's Bicycle and Pedestrian Planner, for his tremendous efforts to create a truly Bicycle Friendly Community.

Nate's response to the award, "After two Honorable Mention awards, Baltimore joins the ranks of Philadelphia, Washington DC & Charlotte as a bronze level bike friendly community. To put it in perspective, Portland is platinum, San Francisco & Seattle are gold, and Chicago & Arlington, VA are silver. We still have a long way to go, but as a community of cyclists, we can become even more bike friendly! Thanks to everyone who helped bring this award to B’more!"

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.
