Help Us Make Springfield Bike Friendly
It's exciting to see Springfield's network of bike routes and greenway trails continue to expand, connecting more people and places! We want to
show how leaving your car behind once in a while (or even
on a regular basis) is fun, good for your waistline, wallet, and the environment. And the more people use the network, the more facilities we'll get!
May 11-15, Join us for Bike to Work Week 2015*
Join Ozark Greenways' fun free challenge to get to work or school without your car at least one day during national Bike to Work Week. Whether by biking, walking, taking the bus, carpooling, telecommuting or any combination. We'd like to show you how.
Register your workplace, school, or organization
By emailing us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Each year about 1,500 people participate! We'd love to have you join our growing list of businesses, schools and organizations who support Springfield's alternative transportation choices. Participating actually makes a difference in helping create a more bike-friendly and alternative transportation-friendly Springfield.
