In the summer of 2015, I worked with Cycles for Change, a community bike shop in St. Paul, to engage community members in conversations about perceptions of and barriers to bicycling.
The result of these conversations includes a report released by Cycles for Change (Oct. 2015).
During the community conversations, we spoke with East African, African American, Karen, Eastern European, and Asian American community members. A wide range of ages were represented from youth to middle-aged adults. In this project, C4C actively engaged young people to make sure their experiences were included.
Thank you to the Bush Foundation and its Community Innovations grant that funded this project.
Please pass this report on to those who would benefit from reading this.
As the primary author of the report, I welcome comments and feedback. I worked for many months with C4C on designing this community engagement project and am happy to speak to that as well.
