Local Bike Trail Maps
White Clay Creek State Park
Named for the clay that was once mined in the area, White Clay Creek State Park’s natural vistas, woodlands and creek with its many small tributaries span piedmont ridges and stream valleys along Delaware’s northern edge. White Clay Creek, a National Wild and Scenic River, is stocked with fish for anglers. The forest provides critical habitat for migrating and nesting birds, including the rare cerulean warbler. More than 37 miles of trails welcome hikers, bikers and runners on the most diverse trail system in Delaware. The rich history of the park, woven through natural and cultural resources, is still evident in the ruins and buildings found here, like the 1790s Judge Morris Estate and Chamber’s House Nature Center.
Delaware Greenways was organized in the early 1990’s during a land conservation movement, which resulted in the creation of the Northern Delaware Greenway Trail. Our advocacy for trails – and scenic byways has continued since then.
By creating trail connections, we are opening safe bicycle and pedestrian travel for recreation and transportation. Needs we found even greater in 2020, and today, then ever before. Our byways provide a way for travelers to take routes that allow exploration of each city and town along the way. Time spent discovering these roads less traveled, enriches all who travel them.
Local Bike Clubs
White Clay Bicycle Club
The White Clay Bicycle Club (WCBC) was established in 1973 and currently consists of approximately 400 cyclists. We have a rich history of reaching out to the community to promote safe recreational bicycling activities; offering cyclists multiple opportunities to engage in, develop, and grow in the sport of cycling; and advocating the rights of bicyclists on a local, state and national level. We come in all shapes, sizes and abilities with one very important factor in common – a love of cycling! We are daily riders and commuters, weekend and occasional riders, and even non-riders. We exist to promote cycling in the Delaware, Maryland and Pennsylvania tri-state area with the majority of our members residing in New Castle County, Delaware. What keeps us all going is our enthusiasm for health, camaraderie, the love of the outdoors and a desire to learn and share knowledge about our sport.
Grumpy Gramps Cycling Club
Our cycling club was born from a passion for fitness, fun, friendship and community service… It was named Grumpy Gramps Cycling Club in honor of our Grumpy yet loving and supportive team captain Theron Palmer. Members of the club have ridden thousands of miles and have thousands more to go.
