The purpose of the Delaware County Bicycle Plan is to provide a base on which improvements to the safety and effectiveness of the bicycle as a mode of transportation in Delaware County can be built. A series of outlined objectives for bicycle transportation are outlined in the Plan, but the essential goal is improving acceptance of, access to, facilities for, and use of bicycling as a mode of transportation in Delaware County. The Plan looks at the background of bicycle transportation locally, nationally, and internationally. On-road routes are selected to be examined for future improvements. Trail possibilities are examined to augment the on-road bicycle improvements. Then impediments to bicycle transportation are identified. Methods for dealing with these problems are outlined using the four E’s of Engineering and Planning, Encouragement, Education, and Enforcement.
