    Delaware Riders

    I'm trying to plan a tour from my house in SE PA to Millsboro Delaware. I was trying to find a good route once I got into Delaware that headed south. From the hybrid views on MapMyRide it seems that riding on (I don't know if it's state road 13) but it seems to be called either Dupont Blvd. and turns into Dupont Hwy. It runs basically parallel to the Korean War Veterans Hwy. Anyone have experience riding on or know if it's possible to ride down? Thanks for the help.

    I rode along 113 between Georgetown and Millsboro last year, and that part of the highway was OK. It has a high traffic volume, but also a nice wide shoulder and sometimes a parallel bike trail. I also rode on 13 for a while north of Smyma, and would not recommend it. It wasn't unsafe, just not very enjoyable. Delaware has a signed bike route running the entire length of the state, which was well planned. The state DOT does not have maps on their website, but I was able to find them (for free) in bicycle shops. Hope this helps.

    I might have to try looking for this. Somehow didn't even occur to me that they have those too...

    They have one. The route is well planned, and the maps are great, but I kept missing signs on the route.

    Here's a link to the journal of my Delmarva tour last year. I rode between Millsboro and Bear before I turned off the bike route.
