    Bikeability Toolkit: free seminars for Bicycle User Group members

    The Bikeability Toolkit is a useful community resource consisting of a comprehensive checklist and resources package designed to help local
    governments to develop bicycle facilities and support cycling programs in their municipalities.

    The Bikeability Toolkit was developed with support from the Australian Greenhouse Office and can be downloaded from their web site at:

    http://www.travelsmart.gov.au/bikeability/index.html

    The Bicycle Federation of Australia is running a series of half-day training seminars to present the Bikeability Toolkit and train local government staff and councillors, BUG members and other interested people in its practical use (for more details, see
    http://www.bfa.asn.au/bfanew/pdf/Bikeability_Checklist_workshop_flyer_23-09-06.pdf).

    The seminars will be held in the afternoons on the following dates across Australia:

    * Sydney: Friday 27 October (Local Government) & Saturday 28 October (BUGS)

    * Melbourne: Friday 10 November (Local Government) & Saturday 11 November (BUGS)

    * Adelaide: Friday 24 November (Local Government) & Saturday 25 November (BUGS)

    * Brisbane: Friday 8 December (Local Government) & Saturday 9 December (BUGS)

    The seminars are free but places are limited. The program will consist of a visual presentation of the Bikeability Toolkit, inspection on foot of local bicycle facilities and a group workshop to apply the acquired skills. Afternoon tea will be provided.

    To confirm your place in the seminar please fill out the RSVP below (in this email) and forward the email to BFA Executive Director, Peter Strang at execdirectorATbfa.asn.au. Please replace the wording in the Subject box with "<Your Name> - RSVP <Your City> Bikeability Toolkit free seminar - <Date of Seminar you are interested in>".

    Please forward this email to any cycling enthusiasts you know that might be interested.

    Regards,
