Registration for the 2010 Delaware Bike Summit, to be held Friday, May 21, is now open. If you’d like to participate, be sure to complete the registration form promptly. Seating is limited. The registration form and additional information about the Summit can be found at the DE Bike Summit website, on the WILMAPCO site HERE.
This year’s Summit will focus on Delaware – what’s been done, what’s planned in the near future, and how you can become more involved in bicycle friendly initiatives. There will be speakers, panel discussions, brainstorming sessions, and vendor and non-profit displays. The full agenda can be found at the website listed above.
Immediately following the Summit you will have the opportunity to do a bike ride through Wilmington (and beyond) with Governor Markell and some of the pro racers in town for the Wilmington Grand Prix bike race. Summit participants will also receive tickets to the pre-race party Friday evening and the post-race party Saturday afternoon. The Planning Committee is also seeking nominations for three awards to be given at the 2010 Bike Summit:
* Bike Commuter of the Year
* Bike Friendly Business of the Year
* Bike Friendly Developer of the Year
Criteria for these awards and nomination forms can also be found HERE. If you know of a bike commuter (you can self-nominate), a bike friendly business, or a bike friendly developer deserving of recognition, please complete a nomination form. Provide specific examples of how the commuter, business or developer fits the criteria. You can fill out the form on-line or you can download the form and email the completed form to Randi Novakoff at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Make sure to tell all your friends – in state or out – about the 2010 Delaware Bike Summit. All are welcome!
