Are You Ready for Walk & Ride?

Fall means Pumpkin Spice on everything and wearing scarves in the morning, even if it's going to be 80 degrees by noon.
It also means that people will be walking around Downtown Bethesda and taking selfies with buses. And we love them for it.

Our Next Question is...

Are You Up for the Challenge?

That's fantastic! You and your team are ready to Walk & Ride!
All you need to do now is come to Veteran's Park at Norfolk and Woodmont Avenues on October 3rd or October 4th and pick up your t-shirt and pedometer. We will be there with Silver from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. both days!
Just one person from your team or company needs to stop by. If your company has more than 1 team, a large bag or box is a good idea.
It would also help if you can formulate a plan to walk so much you dominate this thing.

Well then, you need to make some things happen. If you are the person on your team who hasn't registered yet, please do so before next Friday, October 5th.

If you didn't receive an email from your team captain with the link to register, you can contact them or Jennifer Zucker for the link.

You also need to get yourself ready to walk because you start tracking steps on October 8th.
Also, if you haven't created your team at all, you have until this Friday, September 28 to do so.

Folks, time is running out. If you think you are on a team but didn't receive a confirmation email, or are not sure of something, please contact Jennifer Zucker.
Perhaps you aren't sure what steps can count towards walking? Does Zumba-ing count? How does one enter steps?
What is this whole Challenge about  anyway?
And no, Zumba does not count. Nor does horseback riding. Or marathon training. Or spin class. Or walking your cat...or dog...or lizard...

Lots of Projects! One Big Meeting!

There is a lot changing in and around Downtown Bethesda, especially for those of you who commute via bicycle or by walking to work. 
To keep the community up to date on these changes, Montgomery County Parks and Montgomery County Department of Transportation (MCDOT) are teaming up for two presentations on several projects on one night, Tuesday, October 9! The meeting runs from 6:30-8:30 p.m. and will be held in the cafeteria of Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School.
Join the MCDOT for a look at the design for the remaining Capital Crescent Surface Trail (CCST). These projects will improve the trail and create separated bike lanes along Woodmont Avenue, Montgomery Lane, Montgomery Avenue, Pearl Street, and Cheltenham Drive. Read more about the design here.

Montgomery Parks will be presenting "concept alternatives" for the Capital Crescent Trail Crossing at Little Falls Parkway. The concept alternatives were developed by Parks staff after hearing ideas from the community on how to make this crossing safer for all users.
