Envision’s Westtown Center stands adjacent to The 606 / Bloomindale Trail – a 2.7-mile elevated pedestrian path built atop unused railroad infrastructure that brings together arts, history, design, trails for bikers, runners, and walkers, event spaces, alternative transportation avenues, and green, open space for the neighborhood. Thanks to recent donations of bicycles, Westtown program participants began to ride tandem and/or single-rider bikes on the trail throughout 2017.
As its popularity grew, the initiative became more than just a fun way to spend some time outside. Buddy Biking has become a program that welcomes community volunteers to join Envision clients and staff on the trail, combining physical activity with community interaction. For more information about Buddy Biking, including volunteer details, please call (312) 506-4820.
