Scheduled for 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. Expect dozens of presentations, workshops, roundtable discussion, social events, bike rides, and walking tours with an amazing diverse group of people from around the state and around the world.
The California Endowment’s Center for Healthy Communities is located on the outskirts of Chinatown in Los Angeles, just two blocks from Union Station. Lodging options are plentiful within a mile radius, including the Metro Plaza Hotel across the street and the DoubleTree by Hilton.
This year’s theme is about the intersections in our work: 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; and the theoretical intersections that define how we each approach bicycling via other issues, such as land use and housing, other forms of mobility, how race and class have impacted and continue to impact transportation justice, and the urgency of climate change. We will address all these kinds of intersections in plenary sessions, workshops, bike rides, walking tours, parties, mixers, and community activities. This will be a very inclusive event, with more than 100 free and deeply discounted tickets, and a steering committee dedicated to recruiting participation from across California’s diverse communities.
