Webinar: New Ideas for Bike-friendly Communities (CM | 1.5)
May 19, 2011 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
Bicycling is continuing to grow as a viable option for both recreation, as well as transportation. While many communities have enjoyed growth in recreational bicycling, there are many trends for bicycle facilities that improve the climate for the bicycle as transportation. This webcast will explore new ideas for planning, designing and implementing bicycle facilities that planners can use right now in their communities. Attendees will discover the qualities that define bicycle-friendly communities in Europe, Canada and the United States. Speakers will show examples of successful bike planning efforts and built bicycle facilities while discussing in detail the appropriateness of various solutions for a range of applications and plans. The session will show how planning for bikes can be an integral part of a multi-modal transportation system. Attendees will hear about two case studies, one for a plan and implementation of a multi-use bike path in a downtown urban setting and another about how Indianapolis has created a city-wide bike network and achieved bronze level Bike-friendly Community recognition. Attendees will learn how these communities worked with local stakeholders and planners to bring new ideas to successful implementation and take away new approaches that they can immediately use in their communities.
This webcast is sponsored by the Indiana Chapter.
