This session will provide advocates and officials with the knowledge, steps and actions that will deliver bicycle tourism programs to their state/communities and how the Bike Friendly America program can help. Professionals from Maine to Oregon are finding ways to build a cross-section of support for bicycling programs and projects. These same professionals will help YOU do the same for your own state/community whether large or small.
