Voices From The National Bike Summit

10:15 AM PDT on March 15, 2010

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.  L.A. is represented in the video by Allison Mannos, who discussed City of Lights at a panel during the event.
