Mobile Workshop and Bike Ride
10:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
Join us for a leisurely 10.5 mile bicycle ride down the Hiatus Greenway featuring a quick-build protected bicycle lane outside of the Sunrise Civic Center. We will stop at key points along the ride to discuss successes and challenges in developing a connected and well-designed active transportation network that increase access to community assets and resources. You will also hear from local leaders about current efforts aimed at transforming the City of Sunrise into a more walkable, bikeable and vibrant community. Comfortable clothing and shoes highly recommended. Bicycles are available with advance reservation.
1:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.
Facilitator: Eric Dumbaugh, Associate Professor, Florida Atlantic University
Planners and engineers are trained to provide the best technical solutions for our bicycle and pedestrian network, but are these solutions always appropriate for the end-user? In this follow-up workshop, participants will share their first-hand experiences from the mobile workshop and engage in interactive activities to develop realistic, user-based solutions to challenges identified along the route such as: making connections to greenway facilities for communities and their assets; creating safe crossings across major arterials; nighttime safety along the greenway; and creating a “sense of place.” These recommendations will ultimately be presented to the local jurisdiction for their consideration.
