National Bike Summit 2021 – It’s a Wrap!

National Bike Summit 2021

The 2021 National Bike Summit took place online, February 28 – March 3, 2021. This year’s theme was “Bikes: Our Vehicle for Change” in recognition of the power of bicycling to move us forward, even in the most challenging of times.

It was the nearly 1,200 bike advocates gathered for the same Zoom meetings… 

It was the lawmakers like Representatives Peter DeFazio, Earl Blumenauer, and Ayanna Pressley encouraging us to keep up the work for better biking… 

It was first-time attendees so excited to meet with others who love bikes so much…

It was the bike advocates who have been in the fight for 10 years… 

All of those experiences and more made our 2021 National Bike Summit one of the best (and definitely the biggest!) to date. 

And then on Wednesday, the Secretary of Transportation told us: 

“You’re going to see a lot of energy coming from my office and my team. We’re just going to be a better, safer, cleaner and greener country the more people have great, safe options to get around on two wheels.”

The League is fortunate to have dedicated supporters like you – and advocates at the Summit – who truly believe that life will be better for everyone when everyone can choose to go by bike. Imagine how much we can connect our communities, grow our movement, and spread the bike joy when each of us commits to take actions towards building a Bicycle Friendly America.

In addition to Secretary Buttigieg’s bike-side chat, you can also watch other plenaries recorded during the 2021 National Bike Summit on the League’s YouTube page. 

We were thrilled to host plenaries featuring:
