Our good friends at the Wilmington Bicycle Advisory Committee have launched a preliminary webpage with the City of Wilmington. To quote Chairman Mike Leventry, “Our webpage is REALLY BASIC – but now exists at: www.bikewilmington.org. It is a work in progress.”
The Wilmington Bicycle Advisory Committee (WBAC) was created by the Mayor James M. Baker to advise and coordinate bike-related initiatives in the city as well as advocate for bicycle transportation and recreation opportunities. WBAC welcomes bike enthusiasts of all skill levels to get involved. Committee members actively participate in events like the Wilmington Grand Prix, Bike-to-Work Day, bike surveys, bike infrastructure installation, the Bike Summit as well as supporting various local bike charity and non-profit organizations.
Currently, WBAC holds meetings from noon to 1:00 p.m. on the 2nd Thursday of every month. The strength of our committee comes from strong citizen participation. The committee also has the support of numerous City departments including Parks and Recreation, Planning, Police, Public Works, and the Office of the Mayor. Additionally, we have representation from WILMAPCO, Bike Delaware, the Delaware Bike Council, DART and DNREC – all of whom we see as partners in advancing bike initiatives.
Please contact Mike Leventry at mleventry@WilmingtonDE.gov for more information on getting involved and/or to receive meeting notices.
