Bike Summit Preview: Ignite Sessions

With just the smallest spark, a great idea can ignite change across the country.

Here in Washington, D.C., Veronica Davis turned a bold Twitter hashtag into a vibrant new advocacy organization, hundreds of women strong. With just a blog post, Tom Bowden got countless Republicans nodding their heads with his compelling conservative arguments for cycling. With the success of the Bicycle Friendly Business District in Long Beach, Calif., April Economides helped to spur and accelerate the growth of BFBDs in other U.S. — and Canadian — cities.

At the National Bike Summit we want to share the most innovative and cutting-edge ideas — and our Ignite Sessions are sure to fire you up.


On Tuesday, after our keynote from AAA’s Yolanda Cade, we’ll invite key change agents to the stage to share, in rapid-fire presentations, their big ideas. From advancing equity to making the economic case for bicycling, these talks will inspire us as we head to Capitol Hill and inform your work back home.

  • Marketing to the Culture Class: Active Healthy, Affluent and Aware Consumers: Howard Chang, President and CEO, Top Drawer Creative, Toronto
  • Driving Fast and Riding Slow: The Real Risks of Not Bicycling: Tom Bowden, Chair, BikeVirginia
