National Bike Summit 2007
The National Bike Summit brings together stakeholders from user groups, industry, government, and elected officials from around the country to share their ideas and best practices. Industry superstars, innovative thinkers, and effective national, state and local advocates will help craft a persuasive case statement for bicycling. Delegates will discover the value and impact of bicycling in the critical fields of transportation, health, recreation, tourism, energy and the environment.
Every bicyclist, advocate, enthusiast, and industry leader has a vision of where bicycling should be. At the 2007 National Bike Summit, these visions will be presented, discussed and analyzed before being turned into a visionary national strategy for bicycling in America.
The Summit will focus on a legislative agenda in these areas that delegates will take to Capitol Hill.
The National Bike Summit is our opportunity to inform our members of Congress of the importance of bicycling, and to educate them on specific bicycling issues.
We need delegates from each and every congressional district in the United States at the National Bike Summit. With your help, we’ll ask Congress to Think Bike and do what it takes to create bicycle friendly communities across the country. Your attendance gives bicyclists their best chance to be heard on Capitol Hill.
EDUCATIONAL PANELS AND WORKSHOP THEMES
In each of these areas, we will identify the key issues affecting bicycling, document the value of bicycling, and present our legislative priorities to the 110th Congress.
