Voices From The Bike Summit

I have fond memories of last week's National Bike Summit, which offered this very cool video.

Also, the U.S. Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood announced last week his support for bicycling.

This was a quote from LaHood's blog:

"Today, I want to announce a sea change. People across America who value bicycling should have a voice when it comes to transportation planning. This is the end of favoring motorized transportation at the expense of non-motorized.

We are integrating the needs of bicyclists in federally-funded road projects. We are discouraging transportation investments that negatively affect cyclists and pedestrians. And we are encouraging investments that go beyond the minimum requirements and provide facilities for bicyclists and pedestrians of all ages and abilities."

You should consider attending next year's Bike Summit. Here's 10 reasons why.
