Where does your community need improvements to its bicycle network? The next Delaware Bicycle Plan public meeting is TODAY in  Dover:Tuesday, February 28, 2017, 4-7pm  Dover Public Library,  35 E. Loockerman Street

Every great bicycle network improvement project started its life as just a line on a map. Whether its a huge and ambitious project like the Wilmington-New Castle Greenway or the Lewes-Georgetown Trail or a little “neighborhood connector” that connected a community into a larger network someone – someone like you – first drew a line on a map!

If you have an idea – large or small – for a “low stress” bicycle network improvement that will enable more people in your community to access a nearby trail, or bike to school, to the store, to a restaurant, to the park, to a library or to work, we want to know! Let us know in the form below!

If you can, please also consider attending one of the two remaining public  meetings (in Dover and Wilmington) on the Delaware Bicycle Plan, which  is a once-in-a-decade opportunity to get the bicycle improvements your community needs in an official plan. (If you miss this opportunity, your next opportunity may not come around again until 2027!)  And let your neighbors know about these meetings. One person demanding a bicycle connection is a crank. But five people demanding a bicycle connection are irresistible!

Remember: the last Delaware Bicycle Plan was in 2005. You probably don't want to wait another decade for the next one.

The “neighborhood connector” that recently linked the Jefferson Farms subdivision to the Wilmington-New Castle Greenway started out as a line – in fact, this line right here – on a map.
