With 750 attendees from all 50 states and three Canadian provinces, the 2013 National Bike Summit was certainly a success. The National Women’s Bicycling Forum also saw a huge turnout, with 350 people traveling to D.C. to hear from speakers like Rep. Tammy Duckworth (D-IL) and New York City Transportation Commissioner Janette Sadik-Khan.
We trudged through the snowy weather to show Congress that “Bicycling Means Business,” explored the many ways bikes boost the economy, got inspired by women leaders from across the country, discussed issues of equity in the bicycle movement and so much more. From all accounts, you enjoyed yourselves and are headed home with an even stronger tool kit to advocate for bicycling in your communities.
If you missed the Summit or simply can’t wait to relive it, you can check out our sampling of photographs below. Thanks again to all who came to Washington, D.C., — we’ll see you back in the nation’s capital for the Summit in 2014!
