- Governor Carney Updates Seventh Modification  to Seventh Modification to Omnibus COVID-19 Emergency Order and Twenty-seventh Modification to State of Emergency Declaration (February 19, 2021)

DE Bicycle Law

Bike Delaware reports Injury crashes involving bicycles fell by over 20% after the “Delaware Yield” was made lawful October 5, 2017. Why did that happen? 

- The "Bicycle Friendly Delaware Act" sunsets May 5, 2021 and is being contested by some of Delaware's legislators and community groups for extension. Bike Delaware, Bike Newark and Sussex Cyclists are actively promoting HB 36 which will extend indefinitely its provisions, including the "Delaware Yield". See § 4196A Bicycle approaching or entering intersection [Subsection (c) expires Oct. 5, 2021, by operation of 81 Del. Laws, c. 196, § 2]. See Sussex Cyclists Advocacy Director comments for latest information.

E-Bicycles

2021 Trek Domane+ LT 7: Plush endurance bike with an e-kick; read review on Apple News from Bike Radar. (submitted 2/15/21 by David Meacham)

Plush endurance bike (about £7050/$9,880 - currently $9,200 on Trek website) with an e-kick Trek’s latest e-road bike is similar to its first Bosch mid-motor-equipped bike based around the Domane. Here, however, it has turned to an alternative German-made motor system. Out goes the heavyweight Bosch system and in comes the lightweight Fazua Evation, making this most modern of e-road bikes drop to just 13.8kg/30lb (58cm carbon frame size). And that’s not the full tale: the Fazua system is removable, so if you shell out for the optional down-tube cover (around £70/$98) that saves 2.9kg/6.3lb.
