Bike Summit Buzz Ripples Across the Country

It’s been three weeks since the conclusion of the 2013 National Bike Summit — but the buzz is still rippling across the country. With 750 people in attendance, and our most diverse and exciting program yet, there was a discernible shift in tone from Summits past.

What did attendees take away from their experience? Plenty of new ideas, a-ha moments and excitement about the future of the movement…


Although it was my eighth summit, it felt really new and fresh. Jim Sayer (pictured, left, with April Economides), Executive Director of the Adventure Cycling Association, shared his Top 5 Takeaways from the Summit (also included: a picture of a red, white and blue folding bike!).


If I were an investor in ideas or social movements, I would put a lot of money into bicycling right now. Jonathan Maus of BikePortland has a great wrap-up and gorgeous photos on his re-cap list.

The bike summit armed us with the tools we need to get businesses on board. BikeArlington‘s Zanna Worzella posts on  how the facts and figures presented at the Summit make the case for bicycling.  She’s pictured with the rest of the BikeArlington team and Janette Sadik-Khan, Zanna on the far right.

And StreetFilms captured the voices and perspectives of a number of speakers and attendees on how Bicycling Means Business for their communities.
