National Training Calendar

There is a growing number of opportunities to learn what works and what doesn't work as you move to make your community more bicycle friendly and walkable. We've listed training opportunities in two ways:

  • As a calendar (below) which you can scan for upcoming courses and dates;
  • As a listing of courses subdivided by topics such as bicycle or pedestrian oriented courses, safety, and facility design.

Send Us Your Event Today! You can add items to the calendar below by submitting an email to info@bikewalk.org. Please be sure to include:

  • a course title and description
  • who sponsors or offers the course
  • the date(s) of the course
  • the location(s)
  • contact (e-mail, phone) and link information if available
