CHESTER, Md. (AP) — Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley is kicking off a statewide bicycling initiative to encourage physical fitness and bicycle-based tourism.

O’Malley was to take a bike ride along the Cross Island Trail on Saturday after joining Queen Anne’s County officials and others to kick off the Cycle Maryland initiative.

The group also introduced an interactive map of bike trails and routes across the state to help people plan their cycling trips.

The map includes a rating feature on the “level of comfort” for bicyclists on state roadways.

O’Malley says bicycling is a way to enjoy Maryland’s natural resources and reduce the impact on the land.

Bike Maryland Executive Director Carol Silldorff says the best places to bike are the best places to live.
