A PEEK INTO THE #BIKESUMMIT22 AGENDA
It’s only eight weeks till the 23rd annual National Bike Summit! We are beyond thrilled to be shaping the future of the bicycle movement with you at the Summit and beyond. And because we need as many people involved in the conversations about making biking better as possible, this year’s Summit will continue to offer all sessions as virtual content in addition to the return of in-person workshops and bike rides.
Join us Sunday, March 27, 2022, through Wednesday, March 30th on the Whova app or on the streets of D.C. as we convene under the theme of Choosing Our Future. A historic amount of federal funding directed towards bicycling and walking projects is coming our way and now is the time to come together to mobilize and strategize how we will turn these investments into a future where biking is safe and accessible for all.
