From the National Women’s Bicycling Forum

I knew this one-day event had the potential to steal the buzz from the entire week of the National Bike Summit. The National Women’s Bicycling Forum had a super turnout, inspiring speakers, and great buzz. I met people from across the country and internationally, some new friends and some I’ve spoken to but never met […]

Summit Sentiments

in DC at the Nat’l Bike Summit

Copenhagen cement mixer? No, I’m in front of the Swedish Embassy in Washington where InterBike is hosting a few manufacturers, but not this working two-wheeler. I’m here for the League of American Bicyclists’ National Bike Summit; my first time attending. Washington has an extensive bike share system. I could swipe my credit card and roll, […]
