Silicon Valley and the Peninsula will become bicycle advocacy epicenters as SVBC hosts the first-ever Silicon Valley Bike Advocacy Summit. Professional advocates, politicians, public agency employees, industry representatives, public health officials, and interested community members are invited to participate in a community event focused on promoting the bicycle and smart planning for health, environmental security, and enhanced communities.

Participants of the Summit will discuss and learn about:

  • How promoting the bicycle improves life in our area.
  • How bicycles and active transportation can be integrated into transit-oriented development.
  • How to effectively advocate for increased bicycle access.
  • How the advocacy community can work with government representatives to effectively promote change.
  • Much, much more.
