Welcome to Wausau!

This year’s Wisconsin Bike Summit will be held in Wausau, rated the best small city for cycling in the 2018 Places For Bikes rankings, and will offer a unique opportunity to network with people from other communities and areas of interest with a focus on new perspectives to help make improvements in infrastructure.

Let’s Ride

In addition to the networking and development opportunities one expects from a conference, Wausau’s winning cycling infrastructure will be on full display with guided sessions devoted to mountain biking, road riding, and urban cycling.

NOTE: While a limited number of bikes will be made available, we encourage attendees to bring their own to best take advantage of this unique conference experience.
