A bill that some cycling enthusiasts hoped would open Loch Raven Reservoir to mountain bikers will not be voted on tonight by the Baltimore County Council.
Last week, Marks told nearly three-dozen cycling enthusiasts that there were concerns that the bill would be unenforceable. Nearly 100 supporters attended the May 1 work session—so many that the council was forced to move it's meeting from its conference room to the legislative chambers.
"If the bill came to a vote, I don't think I have the support to pass it," Marks, a Perry Hall Republican, wrote in an email response. "I've talked with the leaders of the mountain biking community, and they believe our efforts have put the responsibility squarely with the City Council to deal with what is the city's property."
