Lewes Mayor Ted Becker to lead Bike to Work Day May 15th


Continuing the tradition of supporting cycling as a great way to commute to work, Lewes Mayor Ted Becker will lead a ceremonial ride to City Hall on Friday, May 15 from his house at 221 Second Street. The ride begins at 8 a.m.
Michael Tyler, chairman of the Lewes Bicycle & Pedestrian Advisory Committee said that all cyclists are invited to escort Mr. Becker on his first Bike to Work observance as mayor. He noted that “Cycling to work not only is good exercise but it saves gas, doesn’t require paying for parking and cycling is a great way to see your surroundings because you become part of them rather than drive through them.” Last May several local cyclists escorted Mayor Jim Ford on what was his last “official” act as mayor. Special Bike to Work T-shirts will be awarded to all participating cyclists. Riders must wear helmets and the ride will be at a casual pace.
Bike to Work day caps a week designated by the League of American Bicyclists as Bike Week—May 11-15—and is part of the National Bike Month activities. For information about the ride please visit the City of Lewes web site at
