Nope, no guarantee--one can only hope. And I know what you mean--one of my favorite walking trails is often used by mountain bikers--and they are not overly considerate-- going at speed. The trail is narrow and I wish it were foot-traffic only.

On the other hand, rails-to-trails are often wider and more agreeable for multi-use.

As both a walker and a cyclist (not mountain biker) I also wish walkers would keep to the right instead of (sometimes) taking up the entire trail by walking more than two a-breast. (and cyclists should obey the rules of the road and keep to the right, too!)

Being considerate comes with sharing trails..be it walker, cyclist or mounted...

Thanks so much for all your good info about bike-friendly Delaware. Looking forward to a visit when things get better, virus-wise.

And we'll bring our bikes...

I bet the kayaking is good, too! Lots of interesting water to explore...

Delaware is mostly cyclist friendly. I ride a bike, kayak, hike, and run, all of which are pretty popular in my area. I have stopped riding my bike to Holts Landing due to there not being any shoulder and the huge increase in traffic on that back road these past few years due to over-development. It really makes me nervous. I don't do any long distance summer rides anymore due to all the traffic and development, but I have good luck riding around my area and riding through all the developments near me all summer long. Most drivers are considerate and know to look out for people out and about. My biggest concern is people backing out of driveways and not looking.

Kayaking is a lot of fun around here and there are typically not any issues. Jet skis can get annoying, but most will stay away from kayakers and I just avoid the areas jet skis like to play in.
