From our partners at the Horizon Foundation...

Join 500 People to Tell County Leaders: “We want the Bikeway!”


Research shows that people who live close to bike routes are 50 percent more likely to meet recommended physical activity guidelines. That is one of the many reasons why hundreds of Howard County residents have joined major county institutions to support  the Bikeway, a 50-mile core network of bicycle and pedestrian routes that will help residents bike more easily and safely. More than half of county residences, schools and parks would be located within one mile of the proposed network.
