Delaware Jumps from 10th to 5th Most Bike-Friendly State!

by Michelle Z. on Wednesday, May 8, 2013

As a You’re the Cure advocate who values living in a healthier community, you'll be glad to hear that Delaware's investment in biking and walking trails and pedestrian improvements over the last couple of years is paying off! 

According to a recent USA Today article, Delaware has jumped from 10th to 5th place in most bike-friendly states by the League of American Bicyclists. This investment not only makes Delaware more appealing to businesses and individuals, but improves the overall heart health of our state. Studies show that for every $1 invested in walking and biking trails, we see a $3 reduction in direct medical expenditures for cardiovascular disease in just the first year. That's important for the fiscal and physical health of Delaware. 

To learn more about our efforts in Delaware and to show your legislators that this health issues is important to you, please visit our Take Action center to send your supportive message today and encourage others to send a message through Facebook.
