Local Bike/Walk Group Seeks Members

The Wabasha Bike/Walk Advocates are looking for people to help plan for the future of walking and biking in the Wabasha area.

The group meets monthly to plan activities and locate routes in the city of Wabasha area.

Recently the group received a grant from the
Statewide Health Improvement Partnership (SHIP) to purchase six new bicycles that can be used by the public. These will be available this coming summer.

The Wabasha Bike/Walk Advocates are now planning biking and walking routes that will connect with existing routes and places of interest in the area.

The group wants to hear from residents on ideas that can lead to healthy lives for citizens through walking and biking.  The group interconnects with and is hosted by the SHIP, which is managed by Tina Moen and located in the Wabasha County Public Health offices.

The next meeting is Feb. 13 at 2:30 pm in the meeting room in the Wabasha County Courthouse Annex.
