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

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

Eat Right To Ride Longer And Stronger - A common (and sometimes dangerous) riding mistake is not eating enough. Your body can only store a one- to two-hour supply of glycogen (muscle fuel). Once this is depleted, if you keep riding, you risk a nasty condition known as bonking. This varies from a pins-and-needles feeling in your arms to disorientation and nausea. It can easily lead to a crash. As a guideline, a 160-pound cyclist riding solo at 20 mph on a road bike burns between 600 and 750 calories per hour. So, always carry energy food and drinks when riding and eat every fifteen minutes or so. Don't wait until you're hungry to eat because it'll be too late for the calories to help. If you race or ride centuries, keep in mind that hard rides during the week before the event can deplete your glycogen stores and hurt your results. And, be sure to experiment with different drinks and foods during training rides to find what works for you so that on the big day, you're eating what agrees with your stomach.
