After nearly four years of effort by Bicycle Access Council, a Share-The-Road vehicle registration plate became official and made available on August 8.  An order form is up on PennDOT’s website now—Form MV-917.  The cost of the plate is $40.  A personalized plate will add a fee of $100 in addition to the $40 plate cost.  All details are included on the form, which can be found at: http://tinyurl.com/za2bua2

PennDOT receives all revenue to be used for the central office position of the Bicycle/Pedestrian Coordinator and/or signage needed for bicycle projects.

We Are TDM was formed to assist people in learning about alternate ways to commute.

Transportation Demand Management uses strategies and policies that seek to address issues of congestion by reducing demand of travel rather than increasing the supply of the existing road network.

Today's Tip

Follow A Pre-Ride Checklist To increase Enjoyment, Reduce Problems - Begin by holding up one end of your bike, then the other, slowly spinning your tires to check for damage, excessive wear or a wobbly rim that rubs against the brake pads. Spin the pedals backwards and watch the chain as it winds through the rear derailleur cage. Is it rolling smoothly or does it kink up? Check your tire pressure with a gauge and add or decrease pressure for the ride you're about to do. Squeeze your brakes and watch the brake pads in front and rear. Is the operation equal and smooth or is one side moving more than the other? Look closely at the brake pads to inspect for signs of excessive wear or glazing. Finally, check that your handlebar, stem, seatpost and wheel quick-release levers are snug. Do you have the water, food, tools and personal items you need? Grab your helmet and have a great ride.
