The City of Spokane, in partnership with the Spokane Bicycle Club and i-Sustain, is sponsoring a series of educational events around innovative cycling infrastructure. The project is called Spokane in Motion, and the goal is to increase awareness around biking in the city and the region.
Building on the City’s Bike Master Plan, city officials are using this project to answer the questions:
- What are some creative ways we can promote cycling in our region?
- How can we make biking safer and more accessible to people?
A Danish bicycle planner will be coming to Spokane to share insights around the Danish experience, and a local cycling expert will provide insights from a U.S. perspective.
Both events are FREE and open to the public. The idea is to encourage curiosity and participation in cycling as an alternative form of transportation.
