About Bike/Walk Central Florida
Bike/Walk Central Florida was born out of a belief that few people get into their cars, ride their bikes, or walk across the street with the intention of colliding. However, Central Florida has a history of designing roads for speed and convenience, rather than walking or biking; we can no longer accept that biking and walking injuries are inevitable. We believe that it is our duty to protect the most vulnerable road users and make walking and biking in Central Florida the norm.
