There are tangible and intangible
barriers in most states preventing
bicycle friendly regulations,
infrastructure, and public
acceptance.
This session will identify
what those barriers are
and how individual states
have been successful in
overcoming them. Or in
some cases, lessons
learned from failure.
• Issues blocking
development of bicycling as
viable transportation.
• Examples of effective tactics, localized
messages, etc. used with local and
state authorities to improve bicycling
conditions including funding
opportunities.
• Key partners (administrative,
legislative, educational, businesses) in
being successful.
• How we got them involved?

Rural communities are
starving for economic
success through new
industry and revenue
streams.
The goal is to share ways
that have overcome
barriers and optimized
opportunities for a bike
friendlier environment.
