• I live near a trail in Delaware but there is no good way to bike to it from my house

    This little bridge recently connected the Jefferson Farms neighborhood in New Castle to the Wilmington-New Castle Greenway. Before this bridge, people living right next to the greenway - just yards away - had to drive miles to get to it.

    Every bicycle project has to start life in a plan.

    The Delaware Bicycle Plan (currently being created) is a once-in-a-decade opportunity to get the bicycle improvements your community needs in an official plan. So if you miss this opportunity, your next opportunity may not come around again until 2027!

    If your community has a great nearby trail (either existing, in design or being planned) but lacks a good way to access it, let us know below! And also check out the upcoming Delaware Bicycle Plan meetings (also below) where you can talk directly to the people putting the plan together. (And let your neighbors know about these meetings. One person demanding a bicycle connection is a crank. But five people demanding a bicycle connection are irresistible!)

    Remember: the last Delaware Bicycle Plan was in 2005. You probably don’t want to wait another decade for the next one.

    I live within a half mile of a major trail in Delaware but there isn't a low stress bicycle route for me and my neighbors to get to the trail!
    Name of Nearby Trail (if known)

    Being as specific as possible, where could a low stress connection be built in your community that would enable everyone in your community - no matter their age or ability - to be able to bicycle safely right from their front doors to the nearby trail?
