Bicycle Friendly Community Workshop
Train the Trainers Session on Thursday, March 6
This three-part training session is being offered on March 6 from 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. by the Association of Pedestrian and Bicycle Professionals and the League to provide the steps to becoming a Bicycle Friendly Community Workshop facilitator.
This training is being offered as an alternative to the National Bike Summit congressional meeting day. The Bicycle Friendly Community program is an awards program that is transforming communities across the country. The program recognizes good efforts, provides technical assistance, and lays out the guidelines to build better communities for bicycling.
The Bicycle Friendly Community Workshop is a half-day workshop that helps communities become more bicycle friendly by assessing the present conditions for bicycling, providing an introduction of the issues affecting bicycle safety and use, and creating an informed action plan to improve conditions for bicycling.
Attend Part One and Two (9 a.m. to 2 p.m.) if you are interested in hosting or facilitating a workshop. Attend Part Three (2:15 p.m. to 4 p.m.) if you’re ready to apply for the BFC designation OR if you’d like to be a facilitator who helps communities move up the ranks. The BFC workshop and training is open to everyone, and is specifically aimed at Summit attendees who are precluded from lobbying.
APBP encourages those trained to facilitate the BFC workshop in 2003-2004 in Nantucket, Portland or New York to attend as a refresher. Be sure to register for the National Bike Summit.
After registering, email Bill Nesper if you intend on attending the training. Registration fees are included in National Bike Summit registration. To attend this training session only please use the PDF version of the Summit registration and pay $175 for the day, which will end with a reception on Capitol Hill.
