2013 KY Walk Bike Summit in Frankfort This Year!

posted Feb 22, 2013, 7:08 AM by WalkBike Frankfort
Did you know that Kentucky ranks 44th in the nation for cycling accessibility?  Or that one of the most reliable indicators of a community's economic and physical health is its walkability rating?  Be part of the effort to make Kentucky a better state for walkers and cyclists and  join us in Frankfort on April 11-13 for Kentucky's first statewide Walk/Bike Summit.

The summit is hosted by the Kentucky Rails to Trails Council and sponsored by, among others, Joe Graviss of McDonalds, known to many of us as a long-time cycling advocate.  Two days of workshops and meetings will be held at Frankfort's Capital Plaza Hotel.  There will also be hosted walks and bicycle rides featuring Frankfort trails and other landmarks.

This summit comes at an opportune time for Walk/Bike Frankfort as we apply for Bicycle Friendly Community designation from the League of American Bicyclists.  We encourage our members to register for the summit and learn how to become more effective advocates for pedestrian and cycling accommodation in our Frankfort/Franklin County community.  Please visit http://kywalkbikesummit.com for more information.

And please let us know if you'd like to be a host/volunteer for one of the planned walks or rides.  It's a wonderful way to show off our beautiful city!
