A grueling and exciting Bike Summit in DC last week it was! Summit activities included Urban Programs Coordinator Allison Mannos presenting on City of Lights at a “Broadening the Movement to Communities of Color” and LACBC Planning and Policy Director and City of Lights volunteer Dorothy Le and Allison lobbying federal representatives for bike friendly federal legislation, including Complete Streets and Urban Revitalization and Livable Communities.

The panel, which also included Jay Ferm, from Planet Bike as moderator, Alison Hill-Graves from Portland Community Cycling Center, and Anthony Taylor, of Major Taylor Cycling of Minnesota, was standing room only! Many groups around the nation were super interested and excited about trying to diversify their materials and programs and approached LACBC afterward. We are excited to plan potential future workshops that include urban cyclists’ needs and getting more women into cycling.  A warm thank you to Planet Bike for pushing this panel forward and sponsoring LACBC’s participation on the panel!

And if that wasn’t sweet enough, here’s the Streetfilms vid on the Summit with a brief interview on City of Lights by Allison.
