Who We Are
We are a citizen-led advisory council to focus local efforts on bringing positive change for those wanting to safely walk and bike in Addison County.
We believe that safe, enjoyable conditions for walking and biking provide significant social, economic and environmental benefits. We are a citizen-led advisory group with an ear to the ground on walking and biking issues and opportunities for all abilities, both on-road and on-trail in Addison County. We strive to build our region’s capacity and understanding for everyday walking and biking, and operate from the premise that walking and biking are essential modes of transit and recreation.
