May 10th, 2011 is the 22nd Annual Legislators Bike to Work Ride. This ride began in May 1990, with State Rep. Roger Roy leading bicycling enthusiasts from the Polly Drummond Hill Shopping Center to the steps of the State Capitol in Dover to attend the signing of the bill creating the Delaware Bicycle Council. Since then it has become an annual event lead by Sen. Dave Sokola to promote bicycling during national bicycling month. Again this year a ride from the North begins at the Polly Drummond Hill Shopping Center (approx 60 miles) and ends at Legislative Mall in Dover.
For those who prefer a shorter trip, additional rendezvous points are planned along the way at Middletown Square (9:30 AM – 30 miles) and in Clayton at Lorenzo’s Restaurant (10:30AM – 14 miles). From the South a group will be riding in from Milton Park (37 miles) with rendezvous points in Milford Superfresh (8:45 AM – 24 miles) and Halls Restaurant (10:00 AM to eat and 11:00 AM to ride – 5.5 miles). All times are approximate but leaders will try to accominidate joining riders as best as possible. All rides and activities are free.
