     With a Maryland State Highways Grant, 25,000 of these much-needed and anticipated Biking Travel Maps will be given away free to all who want to travel in the Mid Section of Maryland on their Bikes. The map covers over 240 square miles from Bladensburg in the south 14 miles north to Laurel, from Silver Spring in the west 20 miles across to Bowie in the east.
      The map will convey the" Kelly Code Color Standards" of :Green Roads for "On-Road-Biking", Brown "Off-Road-Biking", Yellow-"Caution-On-Road Routes" and Red-No Go-Bike Routes". This will be the first Biking Map that a user can easily determine by "Color Code" a safer and predictable Bike Route across this busy corridor.
      This Mid Maryland Section is located in the most highly populated and in-need of good/better Bicycle Travel in the DC Region. The University of Maryland with 50,000 Students/Staff is located right in the middle of the map, along with BARC, NASA , FDA Work-Centers, eight Metro Stations, MARC/Major Bus Lines, Connects DC with four counties and eight major Bike Routes and hundreds of miles of Off-Road Stream Valley Trails.
      The Mid Md. Map will be available at all Bike to Work Stations/Rest Stops on Friday May 19 and at all the eight bike shops situated within the 240 square miles of the map.
      This map project has been a labor of love for the CPABC Map Committee.  They are very proud of their work and are ready to share this wonderful map with all their Biking Friends.
