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.
