California Bicycle Summit
October 15 @ 8:00 am - October 17 @ 4:00 pm
WELCOME TO THE INTERSECTION OF THOUGHT AND ACTION
Every two years, CalBike hosts the California Bicycle Summit. This three-day gathering brings together planners, government officials, agency staff, and bicycle advocates from around the state. In addition to workshops on hot topics such as how to manage the micro-mobility revolution and quick-build bike facilities, the Summit includes rides, tours, films, and social gatherings. It’s a great opportunity to add to your bicycle planning toolkit while you grow your network.
The 2019 Summit will be held October 15-17 at the Center for Healthy Communities in Los Angeles, the California Bicycle Summit welcomes everybody who works for more equitable, inclusive and prosperous communities where bicycling enables more people to live joyful and healthy lives.
This year’s theme is about the intersections in our work. That isn’t just the physical intersections in our communities that should be safe places to traverse and converse instead of the hazardous injury hotspots they too often are. We will also examine the theoretical intersections that define how we each approach bicycling via other issues, such as land use and housing, other forms of mobility, and the urgency of climate change. The ways that race and class have impacted and continue to impact transportation justice is a central theme woven through many of our discussions. We will address these intersections in plenary sessions, workshops, bike rides, walking tours, parties, mixers, and community activities.
CalBike is committed to making this the most inclusive Summit to date. To that end, we are offering more than 100 free and deeply discounted tickets, and our steering committee is dedicated to recruiting participation from across California’s diverse communities.
