National Bike Summit
Safe Streets for Everyone:
21st ANNUAL NATIONAL BIKE SUMMIT
MARCH 15–17, 2020, ARLINGTON, VA | WASHINGTON, D.C.
Being on a bike is fundamentally about joy. It elevates an errand or the slog to work from just another task on our to-do list to "I get to do this!" Being on a bike should be about the freedom we feel, not the fear.
At the 21st National Bike Summit, advocates will come together to collaborate on a shared vision of Safe Streets for Everyone, this year’s Summit theme. In plenary and panel sessions, keynote talks, poster presentations, and expanded networking opportunities, Summit attendees will learn how to influence federal policy and how their peers across the country are confronting the public health crisis facing America: people who bike, walk, or use a wheelchair are in increasing danger on our roads, preventing more Americans from enjoying the benefits of biking and physical activity.
As we finalize the Summit agenda, here is preview of the programming you can expect:
- Keynote speakers like Keya Chatterjee from the US Climate Action Network and Robbie Miller who raised alarms about AV testing on our roads
- The War on Cars will join us for an evening of podcasting
- Advocates like Danny Harris, from Transportation Alternatives, and Amy Cohen, Co-Founder of Families for Safe Streets, will share with us the powerful voices of survivors
- The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety is scheduled to demonstrate how it tests cars' automatic emergency braking systems
- Discover Traffic Gardens will host a traffic garden throughout the Summit that you can explore while grabbing a bite to eat at our food truck corral
- Meetings on Capitol Hill to advance our legislative agenda to build safer streets for people biking and walking
- APBP will host a professional development day on Tuesday, March 17, offering AICP credits for those attending
