National bicycling organization PeopleForBikes is doing some research into what bike-encouragement events work and why. They are working to create an “idea book” for advocacy groups, riding clubs, government agencies and anyone else who might want to get more people rolling on two wheels.
Most people who have ever started biking for any reason know what a difference it makes to ride with somebody else. Or, sometimes, with lots of somebodys.
From the self-organizing PedalPalooza festival in Portland to 100,000 Atlantans at Open Streets Alive to every time a mom or dad hits the trail with their kid, fun and community are essential parts of biking. PeopleForBikes is teaming up with Noah Budnick, a seasoned biking advocate in New York and San Francisco, to create an “idea book” for advocacy groups, riding clubs, government agencies and anyone else who might want to get people rolling.
PeopleForBikes wants to get things started by asking around. What’s one bike-encouragement event that you’ve seen that went well, and how did it go down?
PeopleForBikes would be grateful if you could take the time to complete this short survey. Their favorite examples from around the country will be featured in their upcoming idea book.
