National Bike Summit 2010

league of american bicyclistsScheduled for March 9-11th in Washington DC, the League of American Bicyclists’ annual National Bike Summit is where advocates, industry executives and education experts gather to speak up for bicycling on Capitol Hill. The League believes in getting more people on bikes more often, for a number of reasons. Whether it’s obesity, health care, climate change, air quality, energy independence, traffic congestion, economic development or quality of life issues—bicycling should be part of the solution.

In 2010, Congress and our Federal agencies will be setting national targets and goals for 2020. They will be writing transportation, climate, health care, natural resources and other critical pieces of legislation that will shape our future. Bicycling needs to be prominently featured in these important pieces of legislation, documents, funding streams and programs.

Ten years ago, the first National Bike Summit brought just over 100 advocates and industry leaders to Washington, D.C. This year organizers hope to see closer to 1,000 participants. Join in and help the League propel a new decade of the bicycle.
