The week's events will include "Walk and Roll to School" aimed at children and their parents, with various activities held at local schools; "Walk and Roll to Lunch," which will encourage local employees and residents to walk, bike or take transit to their midday meal at least once during the week; a "Walkability Workshop" for neighborhood groups; and a "Community Walk and Roll" along the Ellen Fletcher Bike Boulevard (Bryant Street) on Saturday, Oct. 6.
The campaign's goal is to double or triple the habit of walking and biking in Palo Alto and create a "tipping point" of cultural change, organizers say.
This is the first in a series of events building up to the Amgen Tour of California Overall Start in February 2008.
