FABB at the National Bike Summit

Several members of FABB plan to attend the National Bike Summit that starts today in DC. Bike advocates from around the country will gather to learn about the latest strategies for promoting bicycling. Attendees will convene on Capitol Hill to lobby Congress on Thursday. You don't have to attend the Summit to join advocates on the Congressional visits. If you can attend and live in Congressman Wolf's district, more advocates are needed for that meeting. Contact Allen Muchnick of Virginia Bicycling Federation for details.

I am able to attend thanks to a generous donation from the Reston Bike Club, sponsors of the popular Tues/Thurs rides in Reston and Herndon and the annual Reston Century. After the Summit I'll give them an overview of the Summit and will relay the latest news about the Transportation Bill.

FABB's Fionnuala Quinn helped organize one of the kick-off events, the Women's Cycling Forum, that is being held today from 2-4pm.
