Iowa Bicycle Summit
The Friday, Jan. 25, sessions will feature two workshops: a bicycle facility design workshop and a trail development workshop. Participants are welcome to attend sessions in either workshop. Engineers, planners, community officials, land managers, trail supporters, advocates and the public in general are encouraged to attend these sessions to learn more about development of bikeways in Iowa.
Tom Huber from Toole Design and Arthur Ross from the city of Madison, Wis., will lead a session on the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials’ Guide for the Development of Bicycle Facilities.
There will be concurrent sessions held Friday to discuss trail development, design and safety, rural community bike planning, complete streets policies, bicycle-friendly communities, bicycle-friendly businesses, blue zones and trails, walking school bus projects, and the U.S. Bike Route System. Finally, the summit will have a new session on funding. The session participants will have the opportunity to meet in small groups with funding coordinators.
Make plans to attend the free Iowa Bike Expo event on Saturday, Jan. 26. This is the perfect opportunity to learn about the best bicycle equipment, optimal riding destinations and future cycling events. Educational seminars will allow present and future cyclists to get in touch with bike advocacy, find the latest consumer trends and learn about new places to ride. The expo is expanding again this year with a 50,000-square-foot space for vendors, organizations and trail groups.
