The 2019 California Bicycle Summit was held in Los Angeles on October 15-17, 2019. In addition to celebrating the 25th anniversary of the founding of CalBike, the Summit highlighted the contributions of a wide range of bike advocates. Participants heard from politicians and agency heads who understand the urgent need to build safe bike infrastructure. We were inspired by local activists who create community through bike culture. More than 300 attendees gathered for a rich program of breakout workshops, plenaries, bike and walking tours, and parties and social events.
The 2017 California Bicycle Summit took place in Sacramento October 3-6, 2017. Starting with an Opening Reception on Tuesday evening October 3, including 32 panels, four plenaries, bike tours, a special reception with City officials and a huge party at the Sacramento Railroad Museum, it’s the bike event of the year.
Our 2015 Summit, Equity in Motion in San Diego was fantastic; participants shared their successes and challenges in promoting equity and community building through bicycling; planners and policymakers shared exciting changes afoot in the private and public sectors; and all of us participated in challenging discussions on how the bicycle advocacy movement can better include and benefit California’s diverse communities.
