This event will take place in San Jose.

Can San Jose create Bike-Friendly Business Districts (BFBDs), where both customers and merchants are encouraged to ride? How can San Jose make the case and gain the support of businesses to make bicycling not only an everyday mode of transport but the easiest way for their customers to arrive? April Economides of Green Octopus Consulting has helped launch BFBD programs across the continent and is coming to San Jose to discuss how bicycling not only improves the environmental health of a city, but is also good for business and local economic development.

Co-presented by the City of San Jose and the Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition.

AICP CM credits pending.
