Voices from the National Bike Summit 2013

Streetfilms was at this year's National Bike Summit and asked many attendees what they thought about the political climate for bicycling funding and what they would tell Congress if they had a chance.

Much attention at this year's summit went to Indianapolis where Mayor Greg Ballard who has overseen a drastic remaking of the city which when he took office had one mile of bike lane and now boasts 75. Plans by 2015 call for 200 total. In addition, theIndianpolis' Cultural Trail, a multi-use path which runs through the heart of downtown officially opens in May and Streetfilms will be going there to check it out.

Just one of the many anecdotes to get excited about from this year's events.  And if you haven't seen it, make sure to check out our video on the Women's Bike Summitwhich was held prior to the NBS.
