Explore the Future of Transportation!

Ted X Wilmington DE

TEDxWilmington, with support from AAA, is holding perhaps the first TEDxSalon in the world dedicated exclusively to exploring the future transportation on Tuesday, October 17th from 1-5 PM. 

The theme of this TEDxWilmington Salon is, “Who’s in the Driver’s Seat? The Transformation of Transportation.” 

Wilmington, Delaware is the perfect location for this event on transportation. In addition to being the home of AAA Mid-Atlantic’s headquarters, Delaware is where the world’s first divided highway was being constructed more than 100 years ago and the Delaware Department of Transportation is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year.

This event will enlighten, entertain, and inspire everyone from daily commuters to transportation engineers to car designers to software developers as we explore the many aspects of the future of transportation. 

This Salon will have two sessions and several speakers in each session.

Bike Wilmington member Sarah Lester from West Side Grows Together was inspired by similar groups in other cities to launch an informal women’s bike ride/ ride series.  Sarah’s goal is to get more women out riding in Wilmington and socializing together.  As such, she is organizing the first event of the group this Saturday, September 23rd at 11 AM. 

It includes a 10 mile loop beginning and ending at De La Coeur on Lovering Avenue, ending with an afternoon coffee or pastry.  As for now, the group is called Women Bike Wilmington but Sarah is working on a more creative name, which she will be glad to share on Saturday!
