Well, we need your insight on the local biking landscape — become a Bicycle Friendly America Local Reviewer!
The final Spring 2013 applications for the Bicycle Friendly Community, Business and University programs are being submitted and soon we’ll begin our bi-annual review of those applications. As always, we’re reaching out to local reviewers to share their on-the-ground perspective of the applications submitted from their area.
As a local reviewer, you may receive applications from communities, businesses and universities and will have two to three weeks to complete your review. Of course, all local reviewers will remain strictly anonymous to allow for candid feedback.
Your feedback will have a direct impact: It will be integrated into the official recommendations each applicant receives at the end of the process. And don’t worry: We’ll give you all the tips and training your need to provide valuable feedback. Mark your calendar for our local reviewer training webinar on February 20 at 3 p.m. EST, which will explain the review process in more detail. Stay tuned for more information on the webinar.
