The US and Canada are tackling major questions around climate change, creating more versatile green spaces, and defining the future of work. As we envision urban planning in a post-COVID world, the shifting attitudes toward commuting, sustainable living, and the development of bike-friendly cities across North America have gained new importance.

In a recent webinar titled The Future of Bike Lanes and Trails, Enterprise Ireland explored the future of sustainable transportation and infrastructure planning through the lens of bike lanes and trails, featuring thought leaders in the space and award-winning Enterprise Ireland supported company, Multihog.

Multihog products are renowned for their innovative design, robust build, and powerful performance, and today are sold worldwide through a network of almost 100 dealers.
