With the glow of the largest Bike to Work Day in history still shining 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 on major trail projects such as the Metropolitan Branch Trail and the Capital Crescent Trail.
Please take a minute and ask MCDOT Director Art Holmes to support the growth of bicycling in Montgomery County by rehire the Bicycle Coordinator. Director Holmes needs to hear that bicycling is important to you.
Thank you for your help in growing bicycling in Montgomery County
