Description

This specific webinar is for the state DOT audience. We are hosting a separate webinar available to the public on December 15. More details to come for that one once available.

At over 18,000 miles, the U.S. Bicycle Route System (USBRS) is a developing national network of routes for long-distance bicycle travel. These routes are determined by state departments of transportation while AASHTO provides oversight and Adventure Cycling technical support.

In this one-hour webinar, learn about what the USBRS is and how you can be a part of it. This webinar offers the opportunity to hear -- from your department of transportation peers -- best practices to create and designate USBRS routes in your state. Bring your questions about the process and ask them in small group breakout rooms.

  • Discover the advantages of having a U.S. Bicycle Route in your state.
  • Learn strategies to successfully introduce the USBRS to your DOT that leads to the designation.
