Join the Cause Bike to Work Week May 14-18:
Join Ozark Greenways for their fun annual Bike to Work Week challenge, May 14-18. Leave the car behind at least one day that week to get to work or school by biking, taking the bus, walking, carpooling, telecommuting or combining modes. The public is encouraged to try out the City of Springfield’s newly expanded on-street bike route network. Our goal is to highlight Springfield’s current alternative transportation options and support future expansion. See all the details and register on our Drive Less page at www.ozarkgreenways.org.
Ozark Greenways’ new “Let’s Go Smart” campaign ties in nicely to this effort as we expand our public promotion of Springfield’s alternative transportation choices and support future improvements.
Special note, the Springfield Botanical Gardens is an excellent Ozark Greenways trail head with plenty of parking, rest rooms, refreshments, and gardens galore. Located at 2400 S. Scenic it is at the midway point of the South Creek Greenway.
Join our staff (Executive Director, Terry Whaley; Program Coordinator, Lori Tack) and various City officials (City Manager Greg Burris; Park Board Public Information Administrator Jenny Edwards; Health Department Public Information Administrator Mike Brothers; City Traffic Engineer David Hutchison) as they commute by bike and/or bus throughout the week. Questions, Lori Tack, Ozark Greenways (417) 864-2015 / firstname.lastname@example.org.
