Bike Walk & Wheel Week in May


Bike Walk & Wheel Week --- May 14-18, 2018 --- Presented by HY-VEE
Where will your route take you? Which active transportation mode(s) will you choose that week to get to work, school, lunch, the store, to meetings, or to visit friends? Whether it's your first time or you're a pro at using Springfield's active transportation options, plan to join us that week by leaving your behind at least once to get to where you need to go --- by biking, taking the bus, carpooling, walking, telecommuting, or any combination. Individuals and teams can participate! Schools are welcome to participate earlier if it fits their schedule better. Please share our Flier and Cher the Road video and The Link video. Join us on social media for prizes and more!

Let us know you're participating by emailing Lori, and then:
>> CLICK HERE to report your participation --- for individuals and teams <<
Individuals and teams report here, during or after the event. All active trips that week are eligible - so plan to walk to lunch, bike to work, bus to a friend's house, or carpool to a meeting - then let us know, so we can give away more prizes! Everyone who reports at least one active trips that week will receive a Panera Bread voucher from us for a free bagel and coffee (or cookie), and other cool prizes. We'll have giveaways all week - randomly and on social media - including t-shirts, hats, stickers, gift certificates, and lots of free movie passes to the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema!

Are you a team leader in charge of rallying your staff, co-workers, or students to participate in Bike Walk & Wheel Week? We can help you plan your strategy.

GET READY --- Choose mode, Plan route, Prep gear
Use our bike route & greenway maps and city bus map, and tips on our Let's Go Smart and Safety Education pages. Find out how easy it can be for many residents to leave their car behind once in a while, or on a regular basis. Here's a video with tips to inspire you! And check out Springfield's 12 bike aide stations. Springfield has a network of 81 miles of on-street bike routes, and over 70 miles of greenways, and this event allows us to show them off!

FREE CITY BUS --- Ride free that week when traveling with a bike
City Utilities will give free city bus rides all that week to those traveling with a bike! Each bus has an easy-to-use bike rack on the front, that the bus driver will happily help you with if needed.

ACTIVITES THAT WEEK --- Stay tuned here for updates
Friday, May 18, 4:00-6:00pm - Join OG for a Trail Mix activity at the Springfield Trailhead - 3845 W. Kearney Street on the Frisco Highline Trail. Meet artist, Joe Malesky, as we gather unusable bike parts for a trail sculpture he'll be creating for the trailhead!
