This year the Annual Walk+Bike Meeting is scheduled in conjunction with the Active Transportation Summit, which runs April 24th and 25th in Salem and will include some great SRTS sessions and representations as well as overall learning, networking, and lobbying opportunities.

Registration is open for the Walk+Bike Trainings in Eugene; June 21-23

My community is talking about educating youth and adults about bike and pedestrian safety.
How can we teach it to students in schools?
What would an adult or family workshop look like?

The Walk+Bike Committee has pulled together a couple of trainings that will help make you or a member of your community the resident expert on bicycle and pedestrian safety! The 3 training options are listed below. We are working on providing some travel scholarships, but don’t have anything confirmed yet. We’ll keep you posted. The location of the trainings is Eugene, OR.

The official lodging for the trainings will be the  Valley River Inn where we have confirmed a special rate of $99 a night and we will organize some fun events based from there since it is along the Ruth Bascom Riverbank Path Trail system, near McMenamin’s North Bank, and a short bike ride from pretty much everything (this is Eugene after all).  Be sure and let them know that you are calling to reserve a room with the “Oregon Safe Routes to School” group.

You can read more about these trainings HERE. We will also provide some networking and hanging out time surrounding the trainings so all training participants can make plans for taking over the world!
