Thursday, April 15th: Understanding Barriers to Bicycling
Have you noticed who rides bicycles in your community? Have you noticed who doesn’t?
In early 2009 the Community Cycling Center recognized that, despite the cost savings and health benefits of bicycling, many people cannot or do not choose bicycles to get around — particularly among communities of color.
Alison Graves, Executive Director of the Community Cycling Center, will share what has been learned during the Understanding Barriers to Bicycling project and what can be done to reduce roadblocks to bicycle use.
Thursday,April 15th – Noon to 1 pm
1120 SW 5th Avenue, 2d floor Room C
