Getting Kids in VT on Bikes --webinar

"Getting Kids on Bikes"
We all know biking is a great form of healthy and green transportation, but sometimes it takes a special initiative to get children and families on bikes. In this webinar we will explore how can you get more kids to bike to school or summer camp and ways to provide opportunities to bike at school or summer camp.

Integrating bicycling into your SRTS program is a great way to extend the reach of your program and help foster a lifetime of healthy bicycling habits. This webinar will focus on the elements required to launch a successful biking campaign:
  • Getting Organized
  • Selecting, Mapping, and Promoting Preferred Bike Routes
  • Staying Safe

Jason Van Driesche, Director of Advocacy and Education at Local Motion, will share tips, tools, and best practices to help you create a culture of biking in your community. Attendees will have an opportunity to ask questions following the presentation and are encouraged to send us questions in advance. 

When: Thursday June 6, 12 - 1 p.m. EDT
Kids on Bikes!  
This webinar is offered by the Vermont Safe Routes to School Resource Center in collaboration with Local Motion and the Center for Health and Learning.
