Bike Walk Civics is a workshop that teaches participants how to become powerful bike and walk advocates in their community. To make our communities places where more people walk and bike to the store, park, jobs, and school, we need many more people getting active and effective. Participating in community meetings and saying bike (and walk) is the first step. If you are past that step and want training to be a more effective advocate, join us!
We have scheduled a five session online workshop on Thursdays from 12-1 pm in March with exciting speakers. Register here for the workshop to learn how you can make walking and biking better in your community.
