WTS-DC 3rd Annual Scholarship Fundraiser: Complete Streets Bike Tour - 1.0 CM

01:00 PM - 04:00 PM Eastern Standard Time

WTS-DC_2017_Bike_Event



The Washington, D.C. Complete Streets bike tour will guide participants through a route specifically selected for a demonstration of Complete Streets elements.

REGISTRATION NOW OPEN!

The 3rd annual WTS-DC Complete Streets bike tour will start at Union Station and will continue on streets in Downtown DC for approximately 7.5 miles. The tour will end at the beginning of the Anacostia trail at Navy Yard where all are welcome to stop at Gordon Biersch for an after ride break (not covered by WTS-DC).

Concepts for exploration in the tour will include bicycle infrastructure, such as shared streets, sharrows, bike lanes, bike boxes, signals and bike boulevards. Pedestrian infrastructure concepts will include separated sidewalks, multiuse paths, streetscapes and integration of green infrastructure. Q&A stops along the tour will provide an opportunity to consolidate lessons derived from the cycling experience.

Educational objectives for planners are:

  1. Understand Complete Streets concepts and how Complete Streets can be employed as a planning tool in urban communities to support a safer, more livable public environment.
  2. Understand how implementation of Complete Streets must be flexible to meet the needs of neighborhoods and the complexities of urban environments.
  3. Understand how local codes and regulations often may not support the development of Complete Streets, and how necessary changed may be effected.

This event is approved for 1.0 (AICP) CM credits.

ALL PROCEEDS WILL BENEFIT THE WTS-DC SCHOLARSHIP FUND AND ARE TAX-DEDUCTIBLE.
