Hello form BikeDE, a Delaware Bicycle Advocacy Group

I haven't been around here in ages, since someone elected me VP of BikeDE. The last thing I advocated was "stop the Viet Nam war."

I'm surprised though, how much can get accomplished when a group of people get serious, get organized, and get busy.

Please stop by my website where I take a more casual approach to advocacy with a variety of blog entries aimed at the general public of returning cyclists and new cyclists.

We just had a fatality of a 16 year old boy at an intersection that doesn't provide proper safety measures for pedestrians and cyclists. I just posted a photo-essay from a different point of view.

The blog is at

I hope to network with other advocates and make Delaware a more bike-friendly state.

Man, that makes me feel kind of sad for the girl in the bike who are trying to get through the intersection.

Congrats, Caroline.

I got my start riding in Delaware. Grew up around Newark. I did the MS150 at ages 12 and 13 in '90 and '91 on my parents' old 1973 Atalas! They still live there and work at UD.

I enjoyed the photos in your blog. Newark sure changes, and stays the same to be sure. I used to be that young longhair w/ a guitar on Main Street!

A great state for riding, no doubt!
