22nd Annual Delaware Legislator’s Ride
May 10, 2011 rain or shine. The Legislators Ride began in May 1990, when Rep. Roger Roy led bicycling enthusiasts from the Polly Drummond Hill Shopping Center to the steps of the state capital. The ride, measuring up to 56 miles one-way from Newark, was created in order to attend the signing of the bill that created the Delaware Bicycle Council, a bike advocacy group. Since then, it has become an annual state event to promote bicycling during National Bike Month. Multiple start locations from Pike Creek to Dover are planned. Further information TBA.
