Lincoln Prairie Trails Conservancy program hopes to advocate for active transportation throughout Christian County. Active transportation is any type of transport that does not involve a motorized vehicle, such as a bicycle.
Board member Steve Dennis explains.
Vice-president Bud Altman says most roads were not designed for bicycles and active transportation modes.
Dennis says more active transportation typically means more tourist dollars into that area. He recently took a trip to Iowa for a bike trail. He hopes others would do the same for Christian County.
The so-called complete streets movement does not hope to make every road active transportation safe, but it does want to make active transportation better and more feasible.
