The Valpo Parks and the Valparaiso Pathways Committee invites community members to celebrate National Bike to Work Week by pedaling to work during the week of May 15-19. The Valpo Parks encourages residents to show their support of the national event by posting their ride-to-work photos, mileage and bike-friendly businesses on the Facebook page for “Valparaiso Pathways.”
According to the National Bicycle Association, 40% of all trips in the United States are less than two miles, making bicycling a feasible and fun way to get to work. The Valpo Parks provides more than 18 miles of maintained pathways for an easy, local commute.
Maps and plans for local and regional pathways can be found at www.ValpoParks.org or www.nirpc.org. For more information about Valparaiso Pathways, contact the Valpo Parks office at 219.462.5144 or email SAntonetti@valpo.us.
