    Webinar Outline

    At over 18,000 miles, the U.S. Bicycle Route System (USBRS) is a growing, interstate route system for long distance bicycle travel. Learn about what the USBRS is and how you can be part of its growth. Some designations occur quickly and most require some persistence and patience from beginning to end.

    This webinar offers the opportunity to hear from organizations involved in successful designations of USBRS routes across the country in partnership with their state departments of transportation. Be inspired by how these groups brought together the routes, communities, local government agencies, cyclists, and advocates leading to successful designations. It is intended for stakeholder groups and organizations who provide varying degrees of support to state departments of transportation in the USBRS designation process.

    Presenters TBD. Presenters will represent organizations and groups that have worked to successfully bring together the elements required to designate a route in the U.S. Bicycle Route System.

    Learning Objectives:

    • Understand what the U.S. Bicycle Route System is and is not.
    • Discover the advantages of having a U.S. Bicycle Route in your state.
    • Learn best practices for working with departments of transportation toward designation.
    • Hear the ways Adventure Cycling can support you/your group in the designation process.


    This webinar qualifies as a Health, Safety, and Welfare (HSW) course (via LA CES).
