Biking with Gov. Markell

    As part of National Bike Week, we take a look at the efforts to improve conditions for cyclists in Delaware.  WHYY’s Mark Eichmann took to the road for a bike ride with Governor Jack Markell to learn more about his passion for biking and what he’s doing to encourage more people to get involved.

    More coverage:

    The state has unveiled a new website for residents to get a look at the plans for new bike trails that will connect existing trails and some that extend in new areas. 

     

    Watch an extended cut of Mark’s ride with Markell as he talks about family biking trips, his futile effort at a half-marathon in Philadelphia, and what he thinks about while out on his bike.
