National Bike Summit 2003
The League of American Bicyclists is pleased to be convening the third annual National Bike Summit in Washington, DC, March 5-7, 2003. As in previous years, the event will include a number of educational and networking sessions on bicycling policy issues.
New to the event this year, however, is our request to all interested parties in the bicycling community to assist in the development of topics through a "call for papers/presentations." We hope that you will be able to help us identify the critical issues currently facing the bicycling and walking community.
