    Thanks for supporting biking in and around Wilmington, Delaware!

    Goal #1 – If you haven’t already, PLEASE contact your local legislators and ask them to support full funding for bicycle and pedestrian projects in the bond bill. It’s easy!

    Goal #2 – Develop grass roots support for bike initiatives within the Greater Wilmington area.

    Goal #3 – Let’s go out and have fun!!
