FREE, seven-part webinar series on the updated AAHSTO Bike Guide

The American Association of State Highway Transportation Official’s (AASHTO) Guide for the Development of Bicycle Facilities serves as a key resource for creating and designing bicycle facilities in the U.S.
The Pedestrian and Bicycle Information Center and Toole Design Group are offering a free, seven-part webinar series on the updated AAHSTO Bike Guide, which was released in June 2012.
These webinars have been approved for 1.5 CM credits each by the American Planning Association. And as an added bonus, attendees to these webinars will receive a 20 percent discount on the purchase of the Bike Guide through the AASHTO bookstore.
