Baltimore Bike Advocacy

Latest blog posts by Bikemore—Baltimore's bicycling advocacy organization.

Bikemore is naming Greg Hinchliffe the Interim Executive Director of Bikemore. Greg is a Baltimore City resident, recently retired Captain at American Airlines, and has been a lifetime advocate for bicycle infrastructure improvement in Baltimore City.

He is a member of the Maryland Bicycle Pedestrian Advisory Committee, is the State Chair of the East Coast Greenway Alliance, a member of the Gwynns Falls Trail Council, the former Chair of the Mayor’s Bicycle Advisory Committee, and he helped organize Tour Dem Parks for the past 12 years.

"Having worked with Greg for many years on bike issues both large and small, I'm encouraged with the direction Bikemore is taking. Greg not only has a solid vision for what a truly bikeable Baltimore can be, but knows how to make it a reality. I look forward to working with him in his new role at Bikemore."  - Nate Evans, Bike Maryland

Greg will continue Bikemore’s daily advocacy work while we launch a national search for a new permanent Executive Director.

If you know of anyone passionate about bicycles with a demonstrated track record of advocacy and fundraising success, please let us know. Bikemore will publish a formal announcement and job description for that position soon.
 

Thank You to Chris Merriam

From initially sparking the idea of a Baltimore-focused bicycle advocacy organization at evening meetings with a small group of dedicated volunteers, Chris Merriam grew Bikemore into a professional advocacy organization that--while still in its infancy--has moved the needle significantly on projects in Baltimore City, and recently expanded into Baltimore County with progress on the I-70 trail connections and the opening of Towson bicycle facilities.

While Chris is stepping down as Executive Director, we look forward to his continued involvement in the organizational mission, vision, and strategy as a founding member.
