The California Bicycle Summit

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

The biennial California Bicycle Summit is the state’s most important 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.

Hold the date for the next Summit: tentatively April 18-19, 2024 in San Diego, CA.

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.
