Janette Sadik-Khan Added to Summit Lineup!
Excitement is mounting for the 2013 National Bike Summit, which opens just one month from today. And just when you thought the lineup couldn’t get any more impressive…
Last week, we shared that outgoing Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood will join us at the Summit. We’re delighted to able to give the Secretary a rousing “thank you” for his leadership these past four years — including attending every single Bike Summit since he was appointed. But we’re excited to announce another incredible headliner: New York City Transportation Commissioner Janette Sadik-Khan.
We’re excited to welcome back Sadik-Khan for the opening dinner of the Summit AND the closing keynote for the National Women’s Bicycling Forum. Not only has the Commissioner transformed the streets of New York City with innovative and widespread bicycle infrastructure, but, in the two years since her last appearance at the Summit, she has literally changed the rules for big cities across the nation through her inspirational leadership of NACTO and the creation of the NACTO Urban Bikeway Design Guide.
Sadik-Khan will help lead a dinner presentation on “The Economic Benefits of Better Cycling Cities” along with two special guests: John Burke, President of Trek Bicycles, Inc., and Bruce Katz, Vice President of the Brookings Institute.
Don’t miss Secretary LaHood, Sadik-Khan, and so many other incredible speakers at the Bike Summit and Women’s Forum. Sign up today!
