Montgomery County needs a Bicycle Coordinator


Dear Montgomery County Cyclist,
With the glow of the largest Bike to Work Day in history still shinning and the recent announcement of bikesharing coming to Montgomery County, it is time for Montgomery County Department of Transportation (MCDOT) to get serious about supporting the growth of bicycling.
The Montgomery County’s Bicycle Coordinator position has been vacant for three months. MCDOT is planning not to hire a replacement.
This is at a time when Montgomery County should be increasing its mileage of on- and off-street protected bikeways, creating a bicycle education program and pushing forward in earnest on major trail projects such as the Metropolitan Branch Trail and the Capital Crescent Trail.
Thank you for your help in growing bicycling in Montgomery County,
Greg Billing
Washington Area Bicyclist Association
Outreach & Advocacy Coordinator
