In Maryland, bicycles became a concern of the General Assembly a century ago. At that time, the Board of Sidepath Commissioners was authorized to build sidepaths along country roads for the use of bicycles (Chapter 658, Acts of 1900).
The present-day Bicycle Advisory Committee formed in December 1991 (Chapter 624, Acts of 1991). The Committee advises State government agencies on funding bicycle-related programs, public education and awareness of bicycling activities and safety, and other bicycling issues (Code Transportation Article, sec. 21-1213). Presently, the Committee has six subcommittees which consider safety and education; law and enforcement; commuting; trail issues; promotion and economic development; and legislative affairs and funding.
