If 2008 was “Year of the Bike” then 2009 was the “Year of the Foot”. Walking topped our reader’s survey as the number one way to get around last year. The reasons for the shift to human-powered transit could vary. Perhaps the national recession got people moving toward the cheapest form of transportation. Perhaps Columbus is coming to terms with its reputation was being one of America’s fattest cities and people are looking for an easy way to get fit. Or maybe people are just trying to test out the accuracy of their neighborhood’s WalkScore. No matter what the reason may be, we welcome the lifestyle changes that are associated with commuting via foot.
