2018 Tours

May 4, 2018 – Richfield
In many rural communities, walking and biking are common, but often the infrastructure for active transportation is limited or nonexistent. There is a need for a safe network of bike lanes and trails not only within towns, but connecting between communities, benefiting both residents and visitors. Come see what’s happening in the Richfield area and learn about how we can improve infrastructure in rural areas.
