The Walk & Roll Rally

This May at the 18th Annual Walk & Roll Rally, the Alamo Area Metropolitan Planning Organization, City of San Antonio and Bexar County will be celebrating walking and bicycling as desirable forms of transportation, exercise and recreation.

The Walk & Roll Rally pops up for one hour only at 8 a.m. Friday, May 2 at Main Plaza in downtown San Antonio! A Mayor's Fitness Council-endorsed event, the Rally applauds residents who use active transportation in their daily routines as well as encourages others to consider what trips they could make by foot, bike, or bus. Join an organized walk or bike ride to the rally point and enjoy refreshments, door prizes, music and a flash fashion show featuring local bicycling and walking street styles. Robert Rivard reports in as Master of Ceremonies, and invited speakers include Bexar County Judge Nelson Wolff, San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro, San Antonio City Councilmember and MPO Chairman Ray Lopez and other transportation and health leaders. VIA Metropolitan Transit is again providing free bus transportation for cyclists with bikes on the day of the Walk & Roll Rally.

The Walk & Roll Rally kicks off a full calendar of events in May, recognized since 1956 as National Bike Month, that offers opportunities for everyone in the Alamo Area to learn more about or share their love of walking and bicycling.
