Director Communications and Events
Katie Kazimir manages Bike Delaware’s communication efforts and events, including the Amish Country Bike Tour. As a former reporter for the Delaware State News, she brings a wealth of experience in writing, photography and blogging. Katie was raised in Delaware and, except for a few years in California and Colorado, is otherwise a lifelong resident of Kent County. While she lived outside of Delaware, she was a full time bike commuter – even when she was 7 months pregnant! She fervently hopes her work at Bike Delaware will enable her to become one again here in Delaware. Katie lives with her family in Woodside.
