  • The 2014 Walkable Bikeable Delaware Summit is set for May 1 in Dover.
    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; 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.
    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 fifth most bicycle-friendly state in America (and the most bicycle-friendly state east of the Mississippi River).
