Needed: Cyclists to help lobby Maryland state legislators this week regarding the mandatory helmet bill (HB 339).
We need to stop this bill because it would kill bikeshare in Montgomery County before it even gets off the ground. It would deter transportation biking.
Many of us will be at the annual bike symposium this Wedneday Feb. 27. A few of us plan to step away at times and seek out delegates and senators to let them know we oppose the bill. We could certainly use help in that effort. We'll probably go around in pairs, so no one will have to fend for themselves!
