We are busy determining what criteria will be used to choose the most walker-friendly city. First we will ask readers to rank the criteria choices. When we have finalized the criteria, we will ask for votes. We are also selecting a panel to help us make the final decision.

The first criteria options include:
How many miles of walking/multi-use trails does the city have?
Are there any walking clubs?
Are there any volksmarching clubs?
How many walker-friendly events are held in the city? (Marathons, half-marathons, 5Ks, charity walks, volksmarches, judges racewalks, etc. ...)

How important is weather when determining a walker-friendly city?
How important is the safety/crime rate of the city?
Does the availability of public transit make a city more walker-friendly?

What other criteria are important to you?

We will put a survey on the WALK! Magazine web site too, but feel free to respond here, too.
