    The Dover/Kent County Metropolitan Planning Organization (whose planning region encompasses all of Kent County, plus the parts of Smyrna and Milford that extend into New Castle and Sussex counties) is creating a bicycle plan for central Delaware. The plan will show where bicycle trails, lanes and other facilities connect, and where they need improvement.

    If you are a Kent County bicyclist, you can give them a little help them by taking their biking survey.


    James Wilson is the executive director of Bike Delaware. He is a member of the Association of Pedestrian and Bicycle Professionals (by whom he was named the 2014 Professional of the Year, Nonprofit Sector), the Institute of Transportation Engineers and the Delaware Bicycle Council. He serves on the board of directors of Delaware Greenways and as the co-chair of the policy committee of the Advisory Council on Walkability and Pedestrian Awareness. He holds engineering degrees from Yale University and the University of Texas at Austin and is the only registered lobbyist for cycling and walking in Delaware. He helped create, and continues to lead Bike Delaware's participation in, the Walkable Bikeable Delaware campaign. During his tenure as Bike Delaware's executive director, Delaware advanced in the national Bicycle Friendly State rankings for five years in a row, farther and faster than any other state, ever. Delaware is now officially ranked as the #3 Bicycle Friendly State in America.
