Public is invited to this free event
Note: Registration for the bike summit is now close as we've reached our attendance capacity.
Bicycling enthusiasts of all levels are invited to attend Louisville’s Bike Summit II, Thursday, February 12th at the Salvation Army’s Male Campus (Old Male High School), 911 S. Brook St.
This free, all-day, grassroots event will allow attendees to learn what has been accomplished since Louisville’s first bicycle summit in 2005, hear about current and future bicycle project plans, learn from national bicycling experts on how Louisville can become more bicycle-friendly, and let their voice be heard.
“If you enjoy bicycling, and want to help us make Louisville a more bike-friendly city, this is an event you should attend,” Mayor Jerry Abramson said.
The summit will feature keynotes from Andy Clarke, executive director of the League of American Bicyclists, Dan Burden, a leading authority on bicycle and pedestrian programs and design, Earl Jones, president of the Louisville Bicycle Club and Abramson, who launched the city’s Healthy Hometown Movement in 2004 and hosts the popular Mayor’s Hike and Bike events on Memorial Day and Labor Day each year.
The summit will also offer breakout sessions on bicycling education and encouragement, enforcement, engineering and off-road biking facilities.
