Virginia get together at National Bike Summit

We've been attending National Bike Summit events this week. Several FABB members attended the National Women's Bicycling Forum on Monday. For more info on the forum see the Women Bike Facebook page and impressions of the forum from SouthLakesMom

Later that afternoon Alta Planning hosted a get together of Virginia advocates who were in town for the summit. FABB's Fionnuala Quinn sent a note to attendees afterwards:

Thanks to all who attended Monday evening's event at Cuba Libre. It was a lively group gathered from Chesapeake/Norfolk, Blacksburg/Roanoke, Richmond, Charlottesville, Harrisonburg, Fairfax, Arlington and Alexandria. We were especially pleased at how many bike coordinators/officials from around the state were present.

Towards the end of the short evening, we held a Speed State Bike Summit with 2-minute apiece presentations (like speed dating but bikes):
In the next day or so we'll summarize some of what we heard at the summit. Thanks to Reston Bike Club for their generous support that allowed us to attend the summit.
