The 2012 Wisconsin Bike Summit

Come ride with us at the 2013 Bike Summit!






Get ready for an all new, fun, and informative Wisconsin Bike Summit. It’s an event you don’t miss! Our vision for this year’s Summit is to create a 2-day experience that will engage everyone – from the most dedicated advocates to those who may be new to bicycling. You’ll choose from a variety of activities such as education seminars, group rides, riding lessons, networking events, and even bicycling-themed games for kids. Whether you have a bicycling addiction or just an interest in trying out pedal power, there will be something for you at the 2013 Wisconsin Bike Summit.

Ride the HPT trails in the Hixon Forest.

New this year, we are separating Lobby Day from our Wisconsin Bike Summit and creating two distinct events. A separate Wisconsin Bike Summit allows a different Wisconsin community to host the event every year. In this way, we’ll be able to educate, unite, and mobilize more people around the state and at the same time, give different communities the opportunity to showcase what makes bicycling unique in their area. We are planning the 2013 Bike Summit for late summer. More details will be available in the coming weeks.

We hope the new Bicycling Lobby Day and Wisconsin Bike Summit events will build on the successes of last four state summits in which nearly 400 bike enthusiasts made the trip to our Capitol each year to learn about bicycle infrastructure and programming, share success stories, and meet with their elected officials.

Check back soon for a 2013 Wisconsin Bike Summit Save the Date.
