An upcoming Willmar workshop will identify real-world problems and hands-on solutions to making Willmar a more bikeable community. A virtual session is scheduled April 27, and an in-person session is set for May 12. WILLMAR — Willmar Bikes, a local bicycle and pedestrian education and advocacy group, will host a Bikeable Community Workshop on April 27 and May 12 focusing on the tangible benefits of a well-designed bikeable community.

According to a news release, the two-session workshop is designed to provide local leaders and planners with the technical assistance to create a more bikeable community.

The workshop will identify real-world problems and hands-on solutions. It is designed for local elected officials, public administrators, health officials, transportation planners, and other local interested parties.

The two-session workshop, which is being facilitated by the Minnesota Departments of Health and Transportation and the Bicycle Alliance of Minnesota, will be held virtually on April 27 and in-person at the Willmar Fire Department on May 12. Registration is available online at tinyurl.com/ebritewillmar .

Bikeable communities accommodate all types of transportation, including cars and transit, but focus on a safe and convenient environment for pedestrians and bicyclists. People-friendly facilities might include such amenities as bike lanes, safe shoulders, gathering spots, benches, aesthetic landscape design and traffic-calming roadways.
