Friday, March 23 11:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. (includes lunch)
Communities must be walkable and bikeable to be successful and vibrant. We’ll be focusing on solutions that give communities the most bang for the fewest dollars. This includes:
- The building of short trails to connect neighborhoods
- Using transit to bypass heavily congested areas
We’ll also look at funding sources for bicycle/pedestrian projects at the local, state and federal level.
Experts from PennDOT will be on hand to discuss PennDOT Connect, policies and resources followed by a question and answer session.
Saturday, March 24 9:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. (includes lunch)
The topics for this day include
- Learning about what’s happening now on the advocacy front in Pennsylvania and what we can expect to see in the near future.
- Bike Safety in the Community – the need for educational outreach to drivers and bike riders
- The League of American Bicyclists Bicycle Friendly program for communities, universities and businesses.
- Community linkages – using bike share, trails and transit to get people where they need to go
- Updates on the PA Mountain Bike League, PA Bike Routes, new trail connections & more.
