The California Bicycle Summit

California’s premier in-person bicycle advocacy and planning conference.

The biennial California Bicycle Summit is the state’s must-attend bicycle event and one of the nation’s leading bicycle-related conferences.

Join this inspiring gathering of advocates, planners, and more for keynote addresses, plenaries, workshops, and bike rides.

The 2024 California Bicycle Summit was held April 18-19, 2024, at the Wyndham San Diego Bayside.

Who Should Attend

We invite anyone passionate about bicycling to join us—whether you’re a bike advocate, city official, planner, or a CalBike member who simply cares about making the world a healthier, more just, and more sustainable place.

In addition to workshops and discussions on hot topics, the Summit always includes bike rides and other mobile tours, cultural events with the host community, and social gatherings. It’s a great opportunity to add to your bicycle planning toolkit while you grow your network.
