Montgomery County Better Bicycling Advocacy Workshop

Are you interested in making Montgomery County more bikeable? Do you want to see streets redesigned to be safer to walk, bike, get to the bus, school, or store.

At this workshop we introduced some strategies for more effective safe streets advocacy including:

  • Review how the County sets priorities, collects input, and makes decisions about transportation needs. Learn about the process, timeframes, identifying decision makers, and our levers to steer them towards safer streets.
  • Ideas for making bicycling safe and other improvements that the County can make in your neighborhood or on your commute.
  • Setting WABA’s priorities in Montgomery County for 2023 and beyond!

Webinar: Biking in the Heat

Join the Bike Ambassadors as they share tips on riding your bike during the warmer months. The Bike Ambassadors will discuss how to ride safely in heat. We will talk about riding gear, bicycle accessories and how to prepare yourself for riding on a hot day. Bike Ambassadors seek to provide helpful information and resources to ensure everyone is riding safely, so join us to learn and share ways that can help everyone continue to biking on those hot days.

Please keep in mind if we do chat about bike advice that what works for you may not work for everyone, and unsolicited advice can feel unwelcoming and condescending. Please come in the spirit of solidarity and communal problem solving.
