2015 Walkable Bikeable Delaware Summit
May 7, 2015
Elected officials, engineers, planners, business owners, community leaders, cyclists, public health professionals, greenway and trail advocates, Governor Jack Markell, DelDOT Secretary Jennifer Cohan, DNREC Secretary David Small and DEDO Secretary Alan Levin will come together in Dover on May 7 for the 2015 Walkable Bikeable Delaware Summit.
In the last 2 years, Delaware has opened phenomenally popular new trails - including the Castle Trail near Middletown and the Gordons Pond Trail near Lewes
- to create new options for Delawareans to be more physically active and to appreciate Delaware's remarkable landscapes and places.
Ranked in the 30s for "bicycle-friendliness" just a few years ago, Delaware is now ranked as the #4 most Bicycle Friendly State in America, and the most Bicycle Friendly State on the East Coast.
The 2015's summit's theme of "Every Age. Every Skill. Everyone."
reflects Delaware's ambition to sustain our remarkable momentum, and to make walking and cycling so safe, so convenient and so much fun that hundreds of thousands of Delawareans will make it a part of their lives every single day.
Creating more walkable and bikeable communities is good for our health, good for property values, good for quality of life, and good for economic development and jobs.
The American Heart Association, Bike Delaware, the Delaware Department of Transportation, the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control, the Delaware Division of Public Health, Delaware Greenways, the Dover/Kent Metropolitan Planning Organization, the Governor's Council on Health Promotion and Disease Prevention and Sussex Outdoors will together host the 2015 Walkable Bikeable Delaware Summit in Dover on May 7.
The summit is open to the public. Please register at
