Countdown to the 2011 National Bike Summit
The 2011 National Bike Summit is almost upon us. By dinner time tomorrow, Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood will be speaking at the Opening Dinner. On Wednesday, Congressman Earl Blumenauer, NYC’s Janette Sedik-Khan, Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar, Robin Schepper from the First Lady’s Let’s Move Campaign, and many others will rally the crowd and dozens of experts will load up attendees with knowledge and inspiration during panel presentations.
On Thursday, we will be taking all that energy to Capitol Hill. Advocates and industry representatives from 48 states and Puerto Rico will meet with their representatives to ask them to support continued dedicated funding for vital bicycling and walking programs such as Transportation Enhancements, Safe Routes to School, and the Recreational Trails Program.
You can count on this: bike pins will be ubiquitous in our Nation’s Capitol.
