Bike-Friendly Business Districts: a workshop presented by April Economides
Thursday, May 30, 2013
Boise State University Student Union, Simplot Ballroom BD 9:00 to 11:00 a.m.
Economic returns are higher in bike-friendly business districts, where merchants encourage customers to ride bicycles to shop and dine, than in districts dominated by car traffic. Learn why this is the case, and learn how business districts across North America have begun to put bicycling into their operations, events and promotions.
“Bicyclists tend to shop closer to home – and more often,” says April Economides, whose workshop will make the business case for bicycling. Workshop participants will have an opportunity to discuss easy and low-cost ideas about how business districts can increase biking and “shopping locally.”
The workshop is free and open to the public. Doors open at 8:30 Please take time to join us on Thursday morning, May 30th.
