The National Bike Summit is the biggest event of the year for the League — and this year is going to be particularly exciting. Sure, we’ve got incredible speakers and workshops. As always, we have an important and powerful message to bring to Capitol Hill. But this year, the future of the League itself will take center stage — quite literally.
It’s a bold agenda, but the League has a new commitment in 2013: To change the face of cycling and work strategically to ensure that the diversity of people on bikes mirrors the diversity of the American population.
Our work and our core mission — promoting cycling and looking out for everyone that rides a bike — remains the same. Our commitment to you, our members, is stronger than ever. But, with the addition of exciting new programs like Women Bike and a new equity initiative, we are quite literally changing the face of who we are by opening the doors to everyone who rides — or wants to ride — in the Bicycle Friendly America we’re working so hard to create.
You won’t just hear more about it at the National Bike Summit — you’ll see it, too. We’ve been working for months give the League’s look an overhaul, as well.
Be the first to see the future of the League; register today for the Summit and join us in Washington, D.C. March 4-6. Don’t wait: TODAY is the last day for early registration rates! Click here to register.
