Biking is becoming a more common form of transportation. Below, learn more about how GVF works with commuters to educating commuters that biking can be a viable option to get to work. Additionally, GVF can generate a customized map identifying if trails are accessible to your worksite, making it easier for employees to choose this alternative to get to work.
LUNCH AND LEARN WORKSHOPS
Is your company interested in hosting a Cycling Essentials Lunch and Learn Workshop? GVF has partnered with local bike shops to provide education directly at the workplace to our partners. Topics that are covered include where to ride, bike maintenance and bike safety. For more information and to setup a workshop, contact Ashley Nuckles.
Whether it’s advocating for trail development, bike lanes, or safe intersection crossings, GVF is committed to helping to grow bicycling as a way to get to and from work. We partner with both the private and public sectors to advocate for bicycling infrastructure improvements within the region. For more information visit www.gvftma.com.
REGIONAL TRAIL NETWORK
The Circuit is a 750-mile network of bicycle and pedestrian trails connecting people to jobs, communities, and parks in the Greater Philadelphia Region. To date 250+ miles have been built.
GVF established the first bike share program in this region called Bike Pottstown. If your company, township or college/university campus is looking to develop a bike share program, GVF can help conduct an analysis of your needs. Contact GVF’s Project Manager, Ashley Nuckles, today.
