TOMORROW: The Association of Pedestrian and Bicycle Professionals (APBP) is hosting a free webinar on women cycling that will explore encouragement strategies and barriers to bicycling. The webinar is free to the public thanks to a generous donation from a sponsor from right here in South Florida. We’re hoping to max out APBP’s webinar capacity of 1,000 participants. You can help us do that by spreading the word. Registration is quick and easy here.
**In addition, APBP has launched a survey for women and girls to gather a ‘snapshot in time’ perspective. Please help APBP gather input from as many women and girls as possible – whether they currently bicycle or not. The survey will be open through May 15th, 2010; http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/womencycling
This webinar was organized in response to the “International Scan on Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety and Mobility“, a tour through Europe’s most bicycle-friendly cities that leaders in our national Federal Highway Administration and Transportation Planning Agencies attended, the result of which is a list of benchmarks and goals related to improving safety on America’s roads.
Personally, I think anything that we can do to reach out to individuals and groups who are bicycling less than others is a good thing. SFBC is pleased to help spread the word about this and is grateful to the APBP for hosting this free national webinar tomorrow (March 31) at 3:30pm. Don’t forget to register!
