Safety and health are important to everyone. When a child can walk and bicycle to school, a community can walk and bicycle for trips, increasing daily physical activity.
Physically active communities are healthier and students perform better in the classroom.
In the Greater Washington region, 9 percent of trips are made by walking and bicycling but 27 percent of fatalities are bicyclists or pedestrians.
We do this work for those that choose to walk and bicycle and for those that do not have other options.
Read the Greater Washington network platform. If you agree with our work, please have your organization sign on and officially support increasing physical activity through safe walking and bicycling in the Greater Washington region.
