Bicycle Route 1, Montchanin to Fenwick Island

Bike from one end of the state to the other on this scenic route that passes beaches, dunes, boardwalks, marshes, and even World War II submarine watchtowers. The entire route stretches 150 miles from the Pennsylvania border to Maryland; the last section, from Rehoboth Beach south, runs along the coast. You’ll share the road with cars, but the generous shoulder provides security for two-wheeled travelers.

Jacksonville-Baldwin Rail Trail, Jacksonville to Baldwin

This 14.5-mile paved asphalt trail gets you away from the noisy city and deep into the woods. It’s a popular route for road and recumbent touring bikes, although the 20-mph speed limit keeps everyone to a recreational pace. The trail abuts Camp Milton Historic Preserve, an important Civil War site.
