Creating an Inclusive Cycling Community in Which we ALL Ride Together LIMITED

Limited Capacity seats available

The purpose of this presentation is to share how our Cycle St. Louis Initiative is developing a more inclusive community by uniting multiple St Louis organizations, both those that support people with disabilities and those that have mainly focused on the general public. We are working together to learn from one another and to create inclusive opportunities for cycling within our communities and transportation.

After this session, participants will be able to:


  • Incorporate inclusive cycling opportunities within the natural community calendar and transportation system.

  • Empower organizations, both that support people with disabilities and those that have previously focused on the general public, to unite and collaborate for current and future change within planning of community recreation and transportation.

  • Organize a calendar of events to provide participants with cycle assessments, cycle basics and safety training and inclusive community ride opportunities. 



This past June, TASH spoke with Susan Fleming about the new recreation and leisure track at this year's conference. To listen to the podcast episode, click the image below or here.
