Introduction

Potential residents of a prospective Bicycle City, Kentucky, development could enjoy a beautiful state with a strong economy. The state was ranked sixth in the 2006 Site Selection Competitiveness Award, an annual review of business expansion activity by Site Selection Magazine. Kentucky’s cities and towns have been recognized for entrepreneurial growth by Entrepreneur.com, according to the Kentucky Cabinet for Economic Development. The cabinet also notes Kentucky’s quality workforce and ideal location for business.

The state’s beautiful landscape is also a likely spot for residents and tourists of potential Bicycle City, Ken., to enjoy. The Appalachian Mountains border Kentucky on the east. The state has more miles of running water than any other state except Alaska, according to the Kentucky Department of Tourism. Rivers and lakes provide more than 1,100 commercially navigable miles of water in the state. Roughly 50 percent of Kentucky’s land is commercial forest, according to the tourism department. Ample public lands, including Daniel Boone National Forest, Mammoth Cave National Park and Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area, also add to the available outdoor experiences.

The alternative transportation goals of a potential Bicycle City, Ky., could likewise benefit from the state’s warm climate and modest rainfall. Kentucky’s moderate climate is thanks to its interior location in the southeastern United States. According to the Kentucky Center for Economic Development, the cyclic jet stream accounts for Kentucky’s typical weather systems as low pressure dominates spring and winter and high pressure dominates fall and summer. Temperatures rarely achieve extremes and rain falls fairly evenly throughout the year.

    Introduction

    Delaware possesses a number of factors crucial to development of a potential Bicycle City Delaware. For one, the First State boasts a positive economic environment, competitive tax rates for business and a high quality of life for its citizens. Delaware’s cost of living is similar to the national average and lower than most cities in the urban northeast. The average home price is below the national average and comparable to prices in surrounding metro areas.

    The climate and landscape would be accommodating to those living and working in a potential Bicycle City, Del., development. Warm, humid summers and mild winters are the norm. Rainfall is fairly even all year with averages in most areas around 41 inches annually. The area south of the Chesapeake & Delaware Canal is a flat coastal plain. North of the canal provides a more urban environment as well as river valleys.

    These factors alone would make the state an ideal location for a possible Bicycle City, DE. But the state also boasts public transportation such as rail and ferry, and an overall non-motorized commuting-friendly environment, which is fostered by the efforts of multiple advocacy groups and state, city and county governmental bodies. For instance, New Castle County has launched a Greenway Master Plan to prioritize greenway corridors in the county, in tune with the ideals of future Delaware Bicycle City development.
