Join us in DC March 4-7!
Today is the last day of early bird registration , so sign up and then  let us know if you'd like to coordinate travel.   Every year, the   National Bike Summit  gives another opportunity to hear from others about model ways we can make our towns more bike and pedestrian friendly.  The Active Transportation Leadership Institute (Sat eve and Sunday) is a deal at $100.  Saturday eve is a social, and Sunday is a full day of intensive workshops (Monday & Tuesday are conference days).  Wednesday is Lobby Day, which will move national policy again, 
as it already gave us policies we see making changes today at SCDOT.  
See last year's group and Summit photos here .
