A committee of dedicated individuals (which I am a part of) from Hyattsville and surrounding areas have been working for about a year on improving biking and walking conditions, and increasing safety in the area.
Now, we'd like to become certified as a Bicycle Friendly City under the requirements of the Bike League. To do so, we will need to form a sub-group of individuals joining their effort to complete the application process. If there is anyone in the area who would like to offer their expertise and be a part of our team for a short while to help the process and meet the August 17th deadline, please contact me off list to find out how you can help.
It should be fun, we are a very energetic and active bunch.
This would make them the
first only current bicycle friendly community in Maryland (but the third in the area). I think it's great they have a wiki with a map and more.- something I expect we'll see more of. iF you live in the area and want to give them a hand, I think it's a great project to get involved in.
