Reston Bike Club sponsors FABB at National Bike Summit

Thank you Reston Bike Club! This year RBC is sponsoring two FABB member's attendance at the National Bike Summit. The summit, held in DC on March 10-12, brings together hundreds of bike advocates from around the country to share knowledge and success stories.

The theme of this year's summit is Bikes+ "We believe it's time to change the equation for bicycle advocacy. To build a bicycle-friendly America for everyone, we can't stop at bicycling as an end in itself. We must consider how bikes can add value to other movements and how our movement can expand to serve broader interests."

Several FABB members are also attending the National Forum on Women & Bicycling held the day before the Bike Summit. The theme of the Forum this year is Bikes + Women Leaders = Big Ideas. "We believe in empowering women to take on positions of leadership in bike advocacy. By creating more diverse leaders, and proposing new systems of leadership we invite more creativity and innovation into the bike movement. We think this will lead not only to more women on bikes, but more inclusive conversations about bike advocacy."

These events are a great way for FABB members to network with and learn from bike advocates from around the country. Thanks again to Reston Bike Club for your support. Along with a regular schedule of weekly rides, Reston Bike Club holds one of the best organized rides in the DC Metro area, The Reston Century. The 33rd Annual RBC Century will be held on August 23.
