NATIONAL BIKE SUMMIT
Building better bicycling — for a better world
MassBike staff and members will participate in the annual National Bike Summit to speak up for better bicycling conditions and more livable communities. As leaders in America's growing bicycling movement, we feel it's important to represent Landry's customers' concerns about bicycling accommodation and safety with our elected officials and policy makers.
Working to make America bicycle-friendly
The National Bike Summit features an engaging bike-advocacy conference and a full day of Congressional meetings with U.S. House and Senate representatives — to discuss and advance future transportation funding for bicycling infrastructure and programs.
The National Bike Summit is organized and hosted by our friends at the League of American Bicyclists. MassBike coordinates our local Massachusetts delegation for this event.

Advancing bicycling safety, funding, and equity
The theme of this year's National Bike Summit is Safer Streets for Everyone, focused on activating and elevating leaders from all areas of the Bicycling Movement.

Help the cause for better bicycling
We realize that everyone who cares about cycling can't attend the National Bike Summit in Washington, D.C. But you can still get involved to make bicycling better for the common good. Here are some easy suggestions:
- Join MassBike and/or NEMBA to support better bicycling locally.
- Get connected and watch for action alerts from MassBike, NEMBA, League of American Bicyclists, Rails-to-Trails Conservancy, and other groups. Then contact elected officials at the local, state, and federal levels to support better bicycling.
- Attend a meeting or event with your local Bicycle Committee to connect with other bike-minded folks in your community. (Or help to organize a group to start a committee in your town or city.)
