Delaware County Adopts Bicycle Plan

The Philadelphia Bulletin reports that on Tuesday the Delaware County Council has adopted the long awaited Bicycle Plan and will appoint a Bicycling Committee to oversee implementation of the plan.

If you are in Media tomorrow morning don't forget that the county Bike to Work Day celebration will take place at the corner of Olive and Front Streets on May 15th at 8 a.m.

Do you remember when Bike to Work Day was a strictly symbolic event? That does not appear to be the case anymore. Locally and nationally government officials are rolling out bicycle programs in and around Bike Month. Take for example the State of Delaware's Complete Streets Executive Order at the Delaware Bike Summit and of course tomorrow Mayor Nutter along with Councilwoman Reynolds Brown will introduce Philadelphia's Bicycle Ambassadors who will make their public debut.
