[ARCHIVED] City of Newark to Celebrate National Bike to Work Day


What: The City of Newark, in partnership with BikeNewark, Delaware Department of Transportation (DelDOT), University of Delaware and Newark Bike Project will recognize National Bike to Work Day as part of National Bike Week (May 14-18). Newark, first named a Bronze Bicycle Friendly Community in 2010, is one of just two ranked communities in Delaware to have that designation from the League of American Bicyclists (LAB).

This event serves to draw attention to the benefits of bicycling, both in terms of transportation and recreation, as well as a source of economic development for the community. As part of the event, BikeNewark will present a special service award to a state resident who has done the most during the past year through advocacy to support bicycling in this community and statewide. There will also be an official announcement regarding a new designation for the City of Newark by LAB.

Participants can enjoy light breakfast food before completing their commutes to work. All participants who register their attendance at the event will be eligible for random prizes, including the grand prize of a Trek commuter bicycle.

When: Friday, May 18th at 7:45 a.m.
Where: Mentors' Circle on the UD Campus at the corner of S. College Ave. and Kent Way

Bicycle commuters are encouraged to ride with others to the event and take advantage of one of six captain-­led "bike trains," which will depart from the following locations promptly at 7:20 a.m.

  • New London Road at the Fairfield Shopping Center
  • Newark Reservoir Park off Paper Mill Road
  • Wyoming Road at Delaware Technology Park near the James F. Hall Trail trail head
  • University of Delaware Field House
  • Chrysler Avenue just off the Elkton Road intersection
  • John R. Downes Elementary School on Casho Mill Road
