Bike to Work Week!

The city's Gary Shell Cross-City Trail and the River to Sea Bikeway are heavily featured this month during National Bike Month. National Bike Month promotes bicycling as an alternative mode of transportation. 

Activities include:
  • National Bike to Work Week from May 13-17
    Members of the community are encouraged to ride their bike to work at least once this week. This year, the Wilmington Metropolitan Planning Organization (WMPO) is tracking the number of people participating in Bike to Work Week. Participants are asked to register by sending an email to with their name, company or organization name, and their preferred email address. The data obtained can help the WMPO apply for grants and a possible Bicycle-Friendly Community designation.

  • 2nd Annual Gary Shell Cross-City Trail Run, Ride & Roll event  on June 1
    About 12 of the 15 miles of the Gary Shell Cross-City Trail are now complete, including the newly added Cross-City Trail connector on Independence/Shipyard Boulevard between Ashton and Converse drives. This new connector will be put to use during the Run, Ride & Roll event on June 1. The event will begin at Empie Park and follow the Cross-City Trail to Halyburton Park and back.
