I signed up for the League of American Bicyclists Annual Summit, which is March 9-11 in Washington DC. Fortunately, my Congresswoman, Allyson Schwartz, cares about bicycling an healthy communities, and she is very effective as a policy maker. I have really enjoyed serving on the Jenkintown Community Alliance Board with Julie Slavet who manages the Congresswoman’s local office.
The Bike Summit is a wonderful place to learn about national policies that affect us locally, and I encourage anyone who cares about bicycling to attend. The early registration ends soon, so now is a good time to register.
If you want another cool experience, attend Velo-City 2010 in Copenhagen. I went to the Velo-Mondial conference in Amsterdam in 2000, and it was incredible to be immersed in a bicycle friendly culture.
