We had a great turn-out for our webinar this week, with nearly 400 people eager to get an overview of the new federal transportation bill.
The first of the Navigating MAP-21 webinar series, “The ABCs of MAP-21″ explained the basics of the new law, what it means for bicyclists and how we can harness the opportunities to fund biking and walking projects and programs. The session was facilitated by Darren Flusche, policy director for the League of American Bicyclists, and included presentations by Caron Whitaker, campaign manager for America Bikes and Randy Neufeld, director of SRAM Cycling Fund.

Mark your calendars for the next Navigating MAP-21 webinar on August 27, which will focuse specifically on the impact of the new transportation law on Safe Routes to School, and what you can do to ensure that SRTS survives and thrives in your community and state. Register here.
