Friday is Walk to Work Day

Forget April Fool's Day. Friday is Walk to Work Day, where Chicagoans, no joke, can ditch the CTA and Metra in favor of their own two feet.

The event is championed by the Active Transportation Alliance, a Chicagoland biking advocacy group. It's supposed to be cool Friday with a threat of rain.

This event should be no problem for residents of the Loop, Near North Side and Lincoln Park. Those community areas are the most walkable in Chicago according to Walk Score, which evaluates walkability in areas across the country.

Of Chicago's 77 community areas, South Deering, Pullman and Riverdale on the South Side are the least walkable areas.
