Registration now open for Fairfax Bike Summit

Some excellent speakers have agreed to participate in the 2013 Fairfax Bike Summit. Jeff Olson of Alta Planning & Design and author of The Third Mode: Towards a Green Society will be our keynote speaker. Other speakers include Andy Clarke, President of the League of American Bicyclists and author of Smart Cycling: Promoting Safety, Fun, Fitness, and the Environment, Bill Nesper who directs the Bicycle Friendly America program at the League of American Bicyclists, and representatives from WABA, WMATA, Fairfax County DOT, VDOT, and several other organizations/companies.  Registration is now available.

The summit will focus on "Tysons: A Bicycle-Friendly Community" and the need to make all future transit-oriented, mixed-use developments in Fairfax bike-friendly, especially since future development in the county will be primarily concentrated around transit. Tysons has the potential to be a very bicycle-friendly place when the Tysons Bicycle Master plan, which FABB helped produce, is implemented.

Eventbrite - Fairfax Bike Summit 2013The summit will be held at George Mason University on Saturday, November 2, and is open to everyone from interested citizens to community leaders. The registration fee is $25, which includes lunch. For more information see www.fabb-bikes.org/summit.

The summit is organized by Fairfax Advocates for Better Bicycling, in partnership with George Mason University, Fairfax County, and the City of Fairfax. If you are interested in volunteering or exhibiting at the summit, contact us at bikesummit@fabb-bikes.org. Hope to see you there!
