National Bike Summit
Bikes: Our Vehicle for Change:
22nd ANNUAL NATIONAL BIKE SUMMIT
February 28 - March 3, 2021 | ONLINE
The 2021 National Bike Summit will take place online, February 28 - March 3, 2021, with daily convenings beginning at 1pm ET / 10am PT. This year’s theme is “Bikes: Our Vehicle for Change” in recognition of the power of bicycling to move us forward, even in the most challenging of times.
For the 2021 Summit, the League of American Bicyclists is inviting individuals and organizations to submit proposals to lead discussions or offer expertise on topics necessary for the bicycling movement to embrace in order to better accomplish our shared mission of making biking better for everyone. Proposals can address any topic relevant to the bicycling movement, while the Summit will seek to elevate our collective understanding around making biking better through expanding bike education, increasing the inclusivity of and access to bicycling through meaningful engagement, and building bike infrastructure for all ages and abilities that connects communities.
The League intends to organize presenters into sessions based on proposal topics (there is no need to organize a panel, please do not submit pre-formed panels without prior approval.) We encourage proposals that leverage the virtual, online format in creative ways to deliver information and engage attendees.
In our efforts to be accountable to our equity, diversity, and inclusion goals across our work, the League has added demographic questions to the RFP.
Individuals selected to participate in the 2021 Summit as speakers or presenters will be compensated for their work with free registration.
The RFP will be open until Sunday, November 15 at 11:59pm PT. We will inform applicants beginning mid-December, and no later than January 15, if their proposal has been accepted.
