Baltimore County PBAC is missing representatives from district 4, district 6 and district 3. Interested cyclists/community activists need to be approved by their county council member.  It would be great if the volunteer is familiar with the local roads and needs of their community or at least willing to explore the needs. The county is finally funding projects around the various communities and local input is always needed. There are only 4-5 meetings a year, currently on Zoom but usually in Towson.  Interested folks drop me a message and I can fill you in on more.

This year, Bike to Work Day is Bike to Work WEEK!
Please join us September 21- 27 for an event with virtual pit stops and T-shirts!
Save the Date!
For more information on registration, pit stops/prizes/t-shirts

There is also Cycle September with many prizes if you register by
August 31st. The date is fast approaching but take the time to register for some great prizes, including an e-bike. BUT you must register soon.

Please register!!!!!!! Be counted! Baltimore County is making serious efforts to improve local bicycling.  They will be revamping the Master Bike Plan for the entire county including rural areas. There is money in the budget for bike improvements, NOW is the time to make sure our local officials see our numbers.

Thanks, Charlie

I saw Bob today, he looks good but his ankle is in bad shape. He has a plate and some screws holding it together all in a cast. He can't put weight on the foot for 4 weeks. His spirits were good but he knows he has a long way to go for full recovery. 

He wants to thank all well wishers and says he will be back on two wheels training for Monument to Monument.

I do not believe robbery was the motive. I believe they caught 2-3 of the youths but there were many others involved.

I do not know their motives, I think he got his bike back.  I do not know if they caught them.  I hope to talk to Bob soon and get more info.

Good news, Bob is going home today.  Still in pain but at least it is home.  He says, lots of minor injuries and 1 serious, leg/ankle.  Stairs will be difficult and only time will tell.

Greetings, Some sad and disturbing news about Bob. He was attacked by some punks near Guilford ave while riding his bike 2 nights ago. He was taken to UMD shock Trauma.  Today he is doing better but in a lot of pain.  He has a severely broken leg(ankle??), like a twisted fracture, in 3 places involving 2 bones. That is all I know at this time. Ill update as I learn more.

Once again the Baltimore Bike Club stepped up BIG TIME and donated funds to help the Baltimore Metropolitan Council sponsor Bike To Work Day. Please support the event to show the local politician our numbers. Be counted!!

I am sure all of you know about Bike 2 Work Day next week but if you don't here is the link to register:
