Welcome to the 2014 Wisconsin Bike Summit! This year’s theme is “I Bike, I Vote.” We chose that simple phrase because our gathering takes place only three weeks before the November election. And while the Bike Fed is precluded by its tax status from endorsing candidates, we certainly can arm you with information you need to make informed choices on November 4th.
This year’s summit is divided into three main tracks, Getting on your bike (A), Staying on your Bike (B) and Getting Wisconsin Biking (C).
These tracks are based on the Bike Fed Vision for America’s Best Ride and the upcoming elections. Biking impacts all Wisconsinites and is a critical component of creating healthy communities on many levels.
This year for the first time, we did a candidate’s survey, we’ll have an “Hour of Bike Power” virtual lobbying workshop and we’ll end the Summit with a short ride and rally at the steps of the State Capitol so that we can demonstrate our bike pride and give new meaning to the phrase “pedal power.” Thanks so much to our sponsors, to our great keynote speakers and workshop presenters. We hope you can join us!
