Save the date, bicycle enthusiasts, transportation planners and environment activists, the 16th Annual Bicycle Symposium, hosted by Bike Maryland, has been scheduled for Feb. 27 in Annapolis.
The all-day event, held in the President’s Conference Center of the Miller Senate Building, begins at 8:30 a.m.

“Attendees have the opportunity to hear from and talk to 15+ experts presenting on topics such as program funding, Bike Maryland's Legislative Agenda, Bikeshare successes and opportunities, developing Bike Friendly universities, businesses and communities, the Bike-Minded Programs, bicycle tourism, the new Maryland Bikeways Program, and much more. This is also a chance for non-profit, government, and community leaders to learn about key bicycle issues and ways to encourage bike friendly practices and accessibility at schools, in neighborhoods, and in the workplace.
