As the City of Boise considers issues of livability and sustainability, the advantages of bicycle transportation become more apparent. It's easier—and sometimes quicker—to get around by bike; cyclists tend to be in better physical shape and, according to the Boise State Bicycle Congress, bike-friendly zones enjoy higher economic returns.
Today from 9-11 a.m., the Boise State University Bicycle Congress is holding a workshop called Bike-Friendly Business Districts at the Boise State University Student Union Simplot Ballroom. The workshop discusses the advantages of encouraging bike travel, what other communities have done to encourage this phenomenon and what "bike-friendly" really means.
The event is free to attend, but online RSVP is recommended.
