SEPTA Jack Markell Trail Trip

Bikes on SEPTA Regional Rail on last year’s excursion to the Jack Markell Trail grand opening.

For the second year in the row, our September Explore the Circuit series will combine bicycling with SEPTA Regional Rail to Wilmington, DE to ride the wonderful Jack Markell Trail.

In Wilmington, we’ll stop at the DuPont Environmental Education Center before heading to Battery Park in historic New Castle. The total round trip is 15 miles on a flat paved trail and boardwalk.

Participants must pay for their own SEPTA train tickets: pre-purchased fare is $5.25, each way ($7.00 cash, each way, if purchased onboard). SEPTA Key Card holders can buy a One Day Independence Pass online for $13. We’ll be stopping for brunch at Cafe New Castle but you have the option of having lunch on your own.

Bicycle Coalition

The cycle ride is free for current Bicycle Coalition members – please see your Members Only newsletter email for the discount code. Not a member? A $35 ticket gets you a spot on this ride and a year-long Coalition membership with all the benefits!

Registration is required for specific meetup details, the ride is limited to 15 cyclists.
