Bicycling to and through America’s Treasured Landscapes

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Bicycling to and through national parks and other federal lands are some of the most iconic bicycling experiences the United States has to offer. One third of the acreage of the United States is entrusted to the federal land management agencies—the National Park Service, US Forest Service, US Fish and Wildlife Service, the Bureau of Land Management, US Army Corps of Engineers, and the Bureau of Reclamation. Learn what these agencies, the Federal Highway Administration, and their partners are doing to improve bicycling and how you might be able to contribute.

National Park Service
I am very fortunate to be a transportation planner for the National Park Service (NPS) at the Denver Service Center, which provides technical assistance as requested to any of the 409 NPS units. My primary focus is on alternative modes of transportation including bicycles. I am also one of two NPS representatives serving on the Transportation Research Board Committee on Transportation Needs of National Parks and Public Lands.
