Although it’s only April, it’s already clear that conversations around bikes and biking are more connected than ever to intersecting issues like transportation justice, climate change, bicycle infrastructure, shared mobility, and the connections between transportation policy and California’s housing crisis, and continue to shape policy, activism, and innovation. As the California Bicycle Coalition celebrates our 25th year, we couldn’t be more excited to bring activists, educators, advocates, elected officials, and industry leaders together to talk about these intersections for 3 days and nights of workshops, rides, plenaries, and more at the 2019 California Bicycle Summit in Los Angeles.
BLACK LIVES MATTER
California will never have the equitable, prosperous and inclusive communities that CalBike advocates for until we address and redress anti-Black violence. We want to actively contribute to ending systemic racism, especially in transportation policy, and most especially in bicycling advocacy. We promise to listen and learn how we can best do this work. To our community members who experience the violence of racism on a daily basis: we see you, we hear you, and we stand with you.
