Do you have a great route for a ride? Is there an intersection that is always difficult or unsafe to cross? Are there specific barriers to walking and bicycling you encounter? Add them to the map!

Provide input on the Wikimap at http://wikimapping.net/wikimap/WC-Bike-Ped-Plan.html.

Winnebago County is developing a bicycle and pedestrian plan to guide biking and walking improvements in the rural areas of the County and we need input from residents and visitors! The Winnebago County Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan Wikimap allows users to tell us places where they walk, run, and bike and provide details about those locations. Stay up to date at the project on the bike-ped plan page.

The Wikimap will be available for comments until Tuesday, May 31. Thank you for your input!
