On June 18, 2011, Cycle Maryland had its kick-off event at Cross Island Trail, a linear park that spans Kent Island in Queen Anne's County. Cycle Maryland's website lists events and resources for cyclists statewide.
In 2015, the League of American Bicyclists ranked Maryland tenth in the Nationís Top 10 Bicycle Friendly States and third among Mid-Atlantic and North East States.
Interest in cycling is maintained by local groups, such as the Baltimore Bicycling Club. Trail systems for bikes are promoted by the Department of Natural Resources. Also, some local governments have developed master plans to incorporate bicyles as a regular mode of travel within their jurisdictions.
