CICLE Workshop: Creating Great Bike Spaces

Learn what facilities can make streets
safer and more convenient for bicycling (and walking.) Enjoy a
tantalizing talk, a sexy slide show, short-n-sassy films, and
handy-dandy handouts. Plus as a special offer, we’ll even throw in a Q
& A segment absolutely free!

Here’s just a sampling of what you’ll learn:

  • What the heck is a road diet, and will it help me lose weight?
  • What’s the difference between a bike path, a bike trail, a bike route and a bike lane?
  • What are cycletracks?
    sharrows?
  • Why is traffic calming all the rage, and how does it work?
  • And, OH SO MUCH MORE!
