Virtual Events

“Let’s Talk” is our new online series with invited guests and community leaders talking about the issues of the day, and how the pandemic is accelerating changes already in progress. Check our event calendar for upcoming events, and view past events on-demand.

Our Tour de Bier fundraising ride is now a virtual event and is sold out.

Adult Education

Each month we offer at least one virtual adult bike education class in cooperation with the Johnson County Library. Topics include bike maintenance and confident city cycling. Our Women Bike KC program is hosting occasional virtual happy hour and coffee conversations. Check the event calendar for upcoming events.

Youth Education

BikeWalkKC operates one of the country’s largest youth bike education and Safe Routes to School programs. In-school programming is currently on hold pending school districts’ decisions about fall semester. In the spring semester of 2020 we converted much of our curriculum to an online format for those schools and students that will be learning remotely this fall.

Advocacy and Public Policy

We continue to fight for you at local City Halls and State Capitols virtually. Visit our advocacy page for current campaigns and opportunities to contact your elected officials.

Bike Donations

We cannot accept bike donations at this time. Please hang onto those bikes and we will gratefully accept them when our office re-opens.

RideKC Bike

The bike share program that BikeWalkKC operates with the KC Area Transportation Authority is operating normally with extra sanitation procedures and new supports for small businesses and health care workers. Visit ridekcbike.com for information.

Pandemic Questions and Answers

Check our Stay at Home KC FAQ for frequently asked questions about walking and biking during the Stay at Home Order, as well as the status of local bike shops, parks, trails, transit, etc. Please keep on walking and biking. Social distancing is critical but difficult. Walking and biking are still safe ways to get some fresh air, move around the city, get some exercise, and protect your mental health during this difficult period.

 


Thank you for your support. Similar to many non-profits and small businesses, BikeWalkKC’s financial sustainability has been threatened by the COVID-19 outbreak. If you are able to, please consider making a donation or purchasing a membership for yourself, your household, or your organization. Any amount helps, and we appreciate your support at this difficult time..
