“More people walking and bicycling, more often, for more reasons.”
The presence of many pedestrians and bicyclists in a community is a strong indicator of the health of that community. In addition to proper engineering, education and enforcement, WE BIKE can help you create a more encouraging environment for walking and bicycling through work with local bicycle clubs, government agencies and advocacy groups.
WE BIKE can help you start a kid’s bike club – a way to teach a bicycle safety course to children in a fun, club environment. It will encourage children to ride and explore their community safely by bicycle.
Local Bicycle Club
Members of your local bicycle clubs are great advocates for encouraging bicycling – and WE BIKE can bring professional expertise to help you mobilize these already active citizens to branch out their efforts through membership drives, club rides, educational activities and promotional work.
“It’s safer. It’s courteous. It’s the law.”
Public Service Announcements/Public Relations Campaigns
Need to get the word out? WE BIKE can help with safety campaigns, awareness campaigns, or to highlight the good things already happening in your community. (Link to New Orleans PSA with tagline Waiting for info from Peter)
As an active member of many national bicycle and pedestrian advocacy groups, WE BIKE has connections in all the right places! Let us help you broaden your influence in your community.
Need more bicycle commuters in your community? WE BIKE will work with employers, clubs, schools, advocacy organizations and government agencies to encourage and promote bicycle commuting to work, school, shopping – everywhere you citizens want to go.
Let WE BIKE work with your transportation department, health department, department of natural resources, park and recreation department and law enforcement agencies to encourage walking and bicycling in your community.
WE BIKE has experience performing site surveys for walking and bicycling to school (Engineering); training for children, parents and school staff (Education); and enforcement of laws to improve walking and bicycling safety in school zones (Enforcement). We can also work with your local SRTS coordinators to encourage more participation.
