Hear from presenters with a wealth of expertise working in low-income communities.

Bicycling is a key strategy for Safe Routes to School programs looking to encourage students to travel short and long distances. However, the lack of bicycles in low-income neighborhoods is a major obstacle to even the most persistent Safe Routes to School program. Low-income communities face many issues that act as barriers to long term participation in bicycling. Ironically, low-income neighborhoods have the most to gain from engaging in bicycling for recreation and transportation.

During this webinar we will be joined by several presenters with a wealth of expertise working in low-income communities. These experts have blazed their own trail while finding new and innovative ways to engage low-income communities in bicycling while implementing a sustainable, successful model that increases bicycling low-income neighborhoods.
