League of American Bicyclists National #BikeSummit21
22ND ANNUAL NATIONAL BIKE SUMMIT
FEBRUARY 28 - MARCH 3, 2021 | ONLINE
For 2021, the League is planning the biggest and best online bike event to date: the 2021 National Bike Summit! And of course, you are invited because you and other people who want to make biking better are what makes every National Bike Summit so powerful and so critical to enacting change at the federal level.
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.
Every Summit is inspiring, and #BikeSummit21 will build our movement and propel us forward in making bicycling safer, more accessible, and more enjoyable for everyone. The virtual 2021 Summit will have plenty of networking opportunities, #bikejoy, and inspiring speakers. Plus, there will be powerful and valuable sessions to help you explore new perspectives on bicycling and how the bicycle, our vehicle of change, is helping create better and stronger communities across the U.S.
Like every Summit, #BikeSummit21 will culminate with Lobby Day, a critical component in our shared mission to build a more Bicycle Friendly America for everyone. By registering for the Summit and taking part in Lobby Day, you’re adding your voice to our grassroots movement as we call on Capitol Hill for federal action to make biking better. Virtual Lobby Day will take place on Wednesday, March 3. The experience will be very much improved over last year’s abrupt shift to a virtual format. You must register for the Summit by February 17th to be included in Lobby Day due to our scheduling efforts with congressional offices.
Members of the League can register for the entire Summit for $50. Non-members can register for $150 (or you can become a member for $40 and save on your registration fee!) They are also offering free entry to youth! Know a young person who wants to get involved in bicycle advocacy? This is the year to invite them to the Summit!
