2018 BIKEABILITY AWARDS PROGRAMME – WINNERS ANNOUNCED!
Congratulations to all those won an award yesterday at the 2018 Bikeability Conference, hosted by TABS in Islington Assembly Halls, London.
The Bikeability Trust is delighted to have launched the first ever Bikeability Awards programme for the industry. The primary aim of the Awards Programme is to reward and promote the good work that the Bikeability industry and partners are doing. Secondary aims include collecting a series of ‘case studies’ that can be used both to showcase Bikeability to external audiences, but also provide examples of best-practice for peer-to-peer learning within the industry.
