The Utah Bike Summit is the statewide bicycle conference. The summit brings together everyday riders, bicycle and trail advocates, representatives from Utahâ€™s bicycle industry, planners, engineers, representatives from Utahâ€™s tourism industry and health fields, and local and state government officials in order to make Utah more bicycle friendly. Regardless of your interest in bicycling (transportation, recreation, road, mountain, commuter), the Utah Bike Summit is for you and all are encouraged to attend.
This year’s summit will be held on April 5th at the Salt Palace in Salt Lake City and we are bringing Copenhagen to Utah. This year’s keynote speaker is Danish bicycle transportation expert Mikael Colville-Andersen. Here is a link to one of Mikael’s TED Talks. We will also have a closing address from Andy Clarke who served as the president of the League of American Bicyclists for 12 years before stepping down last year. In addition, there will be an update from UDOT Deputy Director Shane Marshall. The remainder of the day will be filled with breakout sessions that cover a wide variety of subjects related to increasing and improving bicycling across Utah.
Register here by Friday March 19th before prices go up or seats run out.
A group from Provo will be headed up and you’re invited to join in the fun. Follow the Provo Bicycle Committee group to meet up with fellow Provoians. This is a fantastic way to start getting more involved, find out what’s planned for Utah, and learn how to become an advocate for bikes in our community.
