National Bike Summit 2010 roundup

The 2010 edition of the National Bike Summit and the League of American Bicyclists annual meeting kicked off this morning in Washington DC. Much of the news has focused on Google enabling bicycle directions on Google Maps, but the main purpose of the Bike Summit is to organize, lobby politicians, and make LAB policy decisions.

The theme this year reflects on the Bike Summit’s 10 year anniversary: “Building on 10 years of progress” in cycling advocacy. The number of attendees has grown 10 fold, the number of cyclists in almost every American community has grown, and issues important to many cyclists have gained traction among politicians at the national and local level.

Congress is scheduled to pass landmark legislation reauthorizing transportation funding and setting goals on other important issues related to obesity, health, the climate, natural resources, and energy policy.
