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:

    Vermont Walk/Bike Summit for 2020

    Every two years here in Vermont, a local organization (usually involved in creating improvements for the walking and bicycling communities in the state) hosts a Vermont Walk/Bike Summit.  And for 2020, the hosting efforts will be shared by the Addison County Regional Planning Commission and the Walk-Bike Council of Addison County.   The Summit brings together quite a range of professionals, volunteers, and activists so that they may share information and learn from each other.  The common goals are always oriented toward encouraging more members of the public to walk and bike, and also to facilitate changes and improvements in walking and bicycling infrastructure in Vermont. The Summit for 2020 will be held in Middlebury, VT on Friday, May 8th.  There will be several venues throughout the town at which the various Summit activities will be held, and participants will also have multiple options for dining during the course of the Summit.   While there will be a modest registration fee as well as a limit to the number of participants, any member of the public is welcome to attend.  More details will be available soon on the Summit website, which can be reached here: vtwalkbikesummit.com Please note that this website currently has information from the 2018 Summit, but if you would like to be notified when the 2020 information is posted, please just send an email to reed_bud@yahoo.com.
