Please join Governor O’Malley at the 65th Annual Catonsville July 4th Parade to help promote Cycle Maryland. The Governor will be walking the parade route, which goes from Montrose Avenue, down Frederick Road, and finally turning onto Bloomsbury Avenue and ending at Catonsville High School. We are looking for about 10-15 bicyclists to follow the Governor either on foot walking your bike, or riding your bike, while wearing a stylish Cycle MD t-shirt. The parade is from 3 - 5 pm, with line up from 2 - 2:30 pm. After the parade, stay and continue to enjoy the festivities at the Family Fun Fest, with a spectacular fireworks show at dusk. Click here for more information on the Catonsville parade, festival and fireworks. If you would like to participate in the Catonsville Parade with Governor O’Malley, please contact Tracey Hartman via email here or (410) 974-2316. 

Governor O’Malley is very eager to continue to promote Cycle MD and is excited about the opportunity on the 4th of July in Catonsville, when approximately 60,000 people will be watching. Cycle Maryland officially launched on Saturday June 18th, in beautiful Queen Anne’s County. Read more about the kickoff here. Click here to learn more about Cycle Maryland. 

Carol Silldorff tells the crowd, ""We promote bicycling because planning and public health research all indicate that the best places to bike are the best places to live," said Silldorff. "We know that bike friendly places allow people of all ages, races and economic backgrounds to enjoy healthy recreational opportunities and to travel via bicycle to and from destinations in their 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.
