May 2016 will be here before you know it, so register now for Oregon’s Walk + Bike Challenge. The friendly competition hosted by the Bicycle Transportation Alliance encourages more kids and families to walk and bike to and from school and throughout their neighborhoods.
How does the way we get around affect our health? What role should biking and walking play in Oregon’s transportation network? These are the questions at stake as citizens develop a long-term Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan, led by the Oregon Department of Transportation. The plan should reflect all of Oregon, from big cities to rural communities. Get involved and make your voice heard.
Medford residents can influence important community decisions—like which streets are improved for better biking and walking access, or where new trails get built—by getting involved with the city’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee. Learn more about the committee’s work or attend their next meeting, the second Monday of each month at Medford City Hall, 411 West 8th St.
