    Register here for 2014 Walkable Bikeable Delaware Summit


    The American Heart Association, Bike Delaware, the Delaware Department of Transportation, Delaware Greenways and Sussex Outdoors will together host the 2014 Walkable Bikeable Delaware Summit in Dover on May 1.

    The summit will bring together Robert Burchfield, the City Traffic Engineer for the Portland Bureau of Transportation; Tracy Winfree, the Director of Public Works for the City of Boulder, Colorado; and Delaware elected officials, engineers, planners, cyclists, public health professionals and greenway and trail advocates. Portland and Boulder are two of only four “platinum”-ranked “bicycle-friendly” communities in the United States. Burchfield and Winfree will explain the steps their communities took to make cycling a mainstream and family-friendly part of the transportation systems of Portland and Boulder.

    What are the bicycle-friendly “secret recipes” of Portland and Boulder? The 2014 Walkable Bikeable Delaware Summit will bring Robert Burchfield, City Traffic Engineer of the Portland Bureau of Transportation and Tracy Winfree, the Director of Public Works of the City of Boulder, to Delaware to find out.

    Delaware has two “bronze”-ranked communities, Newark and Lewes. No other communities in Delaware have yet been recognized as “bicycle-friendly”.

    At last year’s Walkable Bikeable Delaware Summit, DelDOT Secretary Shailen Bhatt and DNREC Secretary Collin O’Mara announced that Delaware had been ranked as the 5th most bicycle-friendly state in America (and the most bicycle-friendly state east of the Mississippi River). Just a few years earlier, Delaware had been ranked in the 30s among U.S. states. Delaware’s remarkable progress is in large part due to a supportive state government administration and legislature. A combination of state and federal funds has been used to invest in projects such as the Wilmington-New Castle Greenway and the Georgetown-Lewes Trail. A concept for a bikeway connecting Wilmington and Newark has also made progress.

    In a recent State of the State speech, Governor Jack Markell said “One of the best ways we can improve our quality of life, and promote healthy lifestyles at the same time, is to make our state more walkable and bikeable.” By learning from the most bicycle-friendly places in America, the 2014 Walkable Bikeable Delaware Summit on May 1 will show us how we can make Governor Markell’s vision a reality in Delaware.

      I’ve registered for the Walkable Bikeable…but I need information. Maybe I’m missing it, but I don’t see where it is (other than Dover) or what time it starts.

        Andrew – Thank you for registering! We sent you additional information via email.

      I am interested in attending the Summit but would need to know the location and time frame of the event. Thank you!

        Hi Anna! The summit is 9AM to 4PM in Dover on Thursday, May 1.

        We will be publishing a more detailed agenda within a few weeks. But the summit partners are building the summit program around our visitors from Portland and Boulder. As transportation professionals who are building and managing transportation systems for their communities that have integrated cycling as a mainstream transportation option, we think Delaware can learn a lot from them! And May 1 may be our only chance to hear from them in person.

        We had multiple things go on. 1) our hosting provider has been having technical issues. We have fixed that by switching hosting providers tonight. 2) We have hit our limit of 150 attendees. We are looking into what we can do to bump that up higher. We’ll post more information as it comes out.

      Wij zijn 3 jaar klant geweest bij Juresta Nederland bv.
      Wij hebben veel klachten over Juresta, ze werpen veel
      hindernissen op als ze moeten incasseren. Juresta kwam meestal
      bij ons zeuren dat het een niet haalbare incasso was en dat wij Juresta moesten betalen. Als we dan toch wilden doorzetten lieten ze de incasso
      zaak versloffen. Een ander probleem was dat Juresta wil dat voordat ze
      iets aan hun klant uitkeren dat die klant allemaal fax formulieren verstuurt.
      En ze lieten het ons niet weten als er geld
      op de rekening bij Juresta binnenkwam. Wij adviseren iedereen een ander
      incassobureau te zoeken, wij zijn nu bij een ander bureau
      zeer tevreden.

      You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be actually something that I think I
      would never understand. It seems too complicated and very broad for me.
      I’m looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!

      I don’t know if it’s just me or if perhaps everybody else encountering issues with your website.

      It appears as if some of the written text on your posts are running off the screen. Can someone
      else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them as
      well? This might be a issue with my internet browser because I’ve had this happen previously.
      Many thanks

      I actually do have a couple of questions for you if
      you tend not to mind. Could it be only me or does it look as
      if like some of the remarks come across like they are
      left by brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are writing on additional sites, I’d like to follow
      everything fresh you have to post. Could you post a list of every one of your public pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
