Our Mission

The Walk-Bike Council of Addison County is a citizen-led advisory group with an ear to the ground on walking and bicycling issues and opportunities for all abilities.  The Council operates from the premise that bicycling and walking are essential modes of transit and recreation, and that increasing opportunities and awareness for safe walking and bicycling are good for Addison County as a whole.  It envisions a future where better conditions for safe walking and biking result in:

  • Improved access to amenities and services
  • Healthier lifestyles
  • A better sense of place, and
  • A cleaner environment

The Council is divided into Working Groups as shown below; please click on a photo to learn more:
