Last week, hundreds of bike advocates descended on Washington D.C.
for the tenth annual National Bike Summit -- the largest one yet. Hosted
by the League of American Bicyclists, the summit is always a great
opportunity for advocates to share ideas and make the case for cycling
on Capitol Hill. This year attendees encouraged their senators and
representatives to sign on to several key pieces of legislation,
including the Active Community Transportation Act, Safe Routes to School
Act, and the Urban Revitalization and Livable Communities Act.
Streetfilms attended the summit and had the chance to talk to several
participants. Check out this wrap-up for insight into some of the big
bicycle initiatives happening around the country. You'll hear from
conference host Andy Clarke, Representative Earl Blumenauer, Madison
Mayor Dave Cieslewicz, the FTA's Peter Rogoff, and more.
