Register for Bike Walk Civics online


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.

Bike Walk Civics Training Schedule:

March 2nd-  Making the Case for Walking and Biking, Laws and Design

March 9th-  Navigating Government Processes: Planning and Funding

March 16th- Building Partnerships: Allies and Electeds

March 30th- Forward! Building an Advocacy Agenda & Momentum

Thank you to the American Heart Association for supporting the creation of the project materials and pilot trainings.

  1. Hi,
    Because I work in a school, I cannot attend these workshops. Is it possible to have them archived for later viewing? I’m not at a desk, or on an hourly schedule (think of school bells and 47 minute classes…), so 12-1 doesn’t work, but I’d love to watch the videos!!

    Please let me know.
    Thanks,
    Allison Murray
