Bike Maryland in Partnership with Baltimore Bicycle Club Presents the 2020 Bike Maryland Symposium

The Bike Maryland Symposium is a day in Annapolis where you can network with like-minded Maryland cyclists and advocates and your Maryland legislator to discuss Maryland cycling issues that matter to you

This year, based on popular demand, the symposium is focusing heavily on bicycle advocacy.  We will go in-depth on the specific bills we are pushing for in this legislative session, address all questions and concerns, train and organize on how to effectively lobby, and then lobby with pre-scheduled meetings with your legislator.

Registration is FREE
