Diagnosing and Improving Bicycle Networks & Bike Ride

08:30 AM - 01:30 PM Central Standard Time



A joint Transportation YOU event with BikeWalkKC

On Saturday, October 14th, TransportationYOU is partnering with BikeWalkKC to provide a STEM program on integrating bicycle facilities into our transportation systems.  This activity will be a hands-on opportunity to conduct a bicycle audit of an existing street network to identify the quality of the existing bicycle facilities.  It will be followed by planning and design brainstorming to identify ways the existing streets could be modified to provide a better bicycle network. The event will also explore the role of advocacy in planning for alternative modes of transportation such as bicycles within our transportation network.

This activity will be led by a team of transportation planners, engineers, and bicycle advocates.  Donuts will be provided in the morning followed by a lunch before we learn bicycle safety tips and head out on a bike ride (bicycles and safety equipment are available to use courtesy of BikeWalkKC or bring your own). 

This event is free and open to the first 30 middle school and high school girls and STEM coordinators to register.  We need six to eight volunteers to accompany us at this event.  

Where: BikeWalkKC office at 3269 Gillham Road in Kansas City, MO
When: Saturday, October 14 from 8:30 am to 1:30 pm
