Providing exercise, reduced traffic congestion, and social benefits, bicycling can help solve many community challenges. Simple steps such as secure and convenient bike parking can help transform workplaces, universities, and neighborhoods and towns into bicycle-friendly destinations. This webinar, presented by the League of American Bicyclists, will share information about the Bicycle Friendly America program, which has already been adopted as a roadmap to success by hundreds of cities, businesses, and colleges nationwide.
