MARC: Allow regular bicycles on trains, not just folding bikes

Hi,

MARC trains only allow folding bicycles, which are typically heavier and more expensive than regular bikes, and bikes are one of the best ways of making public transportation practical, by helping people make up for gaps and problems in that transportation system.  Especially in this tough economy, allowing regular bicycles would enable more people to adapt to available public transportation, rather than waiting for transportation to adapt to them.  In other words, this would allow Maryland to get the most bang for its transportation bucks.

That's why I signed a petition to The Maryland State House, The Maryland State Senate, Governor Martin O'Malley, The United States House of Representatives, The United States Senate, and President Barack Obama, which says:

"Allow regular bicycles on MARC trains!"
