Signs of spring abound in Spokane Valley. Convertibles have their tops down. Workers are dashing from cars to offices without their coats. And daffodils are pushing their way up through the ground.

Also growing in abundance are the number of people taking walks and riding bikes through town. Spokane Valley isn’t exactly known for being pedestrian and bicycle friendly, but people seem to find a path for fresh air and exercise anyway.

So where are the best walking and biking routes – besides the Centennial Trail – in the Valley? Do you have a favorite stretch in your neighborhood? Or do you travel to another part of town for a change of scenery when you exercise? What’s your walking routine? Also, are there any roads you avoid?

If you bike, either for pleasure or as your commute, are there some roads you shun and some you can’t wait to pedal down?

The Valley Voice is putting together a story on what it’s like to be a pedestrian in the Valley and we’re looking for your input. Please send your thoughts to: Pedestrian Story, c/o The Spokesman-Review, 13208 E. Sprague Ave., Spokane Valley, WA 99216. You can also call reporter Megan Cooley at 927-2165 or send her an e-mail at

Please include your name and phone number. Unless you state otherwise, we’ll assume it’s OK to use your name in the story.
