|Fiscal Year||Outreach Events||Attendees|
The BikeArlington program conducts or organizes a number of bicycle safety classes each year. This measure provides the number of bicycle safety outreach events held each fiscal year, as well as event attendance.
As the number of bicycle trips increases, safety training and awareness for all users of Arlington streets and trails is crucial.
This measure tracks attendance at BikeArlington safety and outreach classes, including events like commuter seminars, Confident City Cycling classes, Two Wheel Tuesdays and Learn to Ride classes. This measure supports the MTP Goal 3: Promote Safety and Goal 5: Manage Effectively and Efficiently.
BikeArlington outreach event attendance has increased over the last three years, and peaked in fiscal year 2013 with 538 individuals participating in safety classes, due largely to a similar increase in the number of outreach events held that year. The most recent fiscal year saw a correlation between the decrease in events and attendance, however, average attendance per event has risen from 9 people per class or event in 2012 to 16 people per class or event in 2014.
