How do you go about making a community even more bicycle friendly? Leading organizations set goals based on the League of American Bicyclists' prestigious "Bike Friendly" awards, then take steps to measure up. Anyone can use LAB's requirements as a great source for ideas, as well.
This meeting will focus on the first-hand experiences of some of our most progressive local organizations seeking LAB's awards. It will provide a great chance to ask questions and share your thoughts with speakers, as well.
