How much can one person see during a day of cyclocross racing? Look through the lens of Keith Walberg as he made his way around Eva Bandman Park in Louisville, Kentucky. The atmosphere was electric for the first ever elite world cyclocross championships held in North America.
Thanks to a grant from the Emily Hall Tremaine Foundation, the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection, the Clean Energy Finance and Investment Authority and the Capitol Region Council of Governments partnered to produce this Building Healthy Communities video for the State's Lead By Example Program and the Sustainable Capitol Region Initiative. This segment focuses on how several CT towns are working to improve the health of their residents by supporting programs that provide access to fresh foods and encourage walking and biking. The role of farmers’ markets, community gardens, multi-use trails, walkability audits, bike-to-work initiatives and innovative bicycle-friendly programs are explored.
