Bike, Walk & Wheel Week 2020

Where: Ozark Greenways, Inc.

When: Friday-Sunday May 15-17th from 5 AM - 8 PM

"While many of our normal daily activities may be restricted, being active can invigorate us and boost our optimism. Cycling, walking, and wheeling in our beautiful outdoors all offer a healthy break, both physically and mentally, to those stuck indoors more than usual.

We hope that you will celebrate being active with a bicycle, walking, or wheeling activity. Whether a walk around the block to check on a neighbor or a bicycle ride on a new trail, we hope that you will join the fun.

Additionally, we are highlighting several activities that are happening in our region that will help you get outside and be active.

Be sure to post a pic/selfie on Facebook/Instagram (make sure it is public) and use #BikeWalkWheelWeekSGF to be entered into daily prize drawings and the grand prize drawing on June 1, 2020. "
