Why attend the National Bike Summit? Because the agenda focuses on key topics you're addressing in your community, like equity, messaging and funding.

TESTIMONIAL: WHY I ATTEND THE SUMMIT
The National Bike Summit attracts big names in bicycling, from the Secretary of Transportation to Bicycling Hall of Fame members. We recently asked mountain bike visionary and longtime National Bike Summit attendee Gary Fisher (pictured, center): "Why do you attend -- and what excites you about -- the Summit?"

 

"I'm going to the DC Bike Summit to connect with the people who will enact the change our country so desperately needs," he said. "And I know I'll learn at the DC Bike Summit. Learning is my favorite thing to do and this excites me to no end."

TAKE ACTION FOR BIKE EQUITY; ATTEND THE SUMMIT
Last year, the League released a report -- "The New Majority: Pedaling Toward Equity" -- that highlighted the prevailing disparities in safe biking and walking in low-income and communities of color nationwide. Now, a new bi-partisan bill in Congressintroduced by Rep. Albio Sires (D-NJ), would allow communities to take advantage of low-cost financing for projects that make streets and sidewalks safer for all users through a new federal credit assistance program that would direct millions specifically for low-income communities.

Attend the National Bike Summit to share your support for bike equity with your member of Congress -- in person!

GET CENTERED: BIKE SUMMIT YOGA

This year at the National Bike Summit, we won't just prepare you to head to Capitol Hill by giving you all the facts -- we'll also help you work out the kinks and learn how to kick bike-advocate stress with a Yoga for Cyclists workshop. Led by Abbie Durkee (pictured) -- a certified yoga instructor, USA Cycling Coach and founder of MyAlibi clothing -- this $10 donation class at 6:30 a.m. on Tuesday, March 4, will speak to the specific needs of cyclists and give you postures you can integrate daily for muscular balance. Register for the Summit today and mark your calendars for yoga on Tuesday morning!
