The National Bike Summit is the premier bike advocacy event of the year for bike advocates and professionals! 

WITH NEW LEADERSHIP IN THE OVAL OFFICE, we need your voice FOR BIKES on Capitol Hill!  Congress will be in session to hear your voice.

This INSPIRING event builds our movement for 2017 and beyond. Focus will be on regional planning, national and local messaging, and the road map of our work together in advancing the bicycling movement. Networking opportunities, keynote addresses from top government officials, workshops highlighting innovative advocacy ideas, and an organized Lobby Day to bring our pro-bicycling message to our elected officials on Capitol Hill - experience it all during our few days together!

This year’s event will be held March 6-9, 2017 at the Renaissance Hotel in Downtown DC, located at 999 Ninth St. NW Washington, DC 20001.

This session will cover innovative outreach and engagement in both rural states like Maine, and urban centers like Washington, DC. Learn about both education and advocacy programs that reach out to train the trainer, and others that go out to meet people where they are - both figuratively and literally!
