Youth Bike Summit Recap

Posted on Oct 19th 2017 | Advocacy, Bike Life, Blog,

A few weeks ago we posted a blog about the 7th annual Youth Bike Summit (YBS) that took place on October 6th – 8th in Arlington, VA. Planet Bike has been a long-time supporter of the YBS and we are always excited to see the results and growth of the summit each year.

Keynote presentation session

More than 500 youth and adult leaders from 23 states, 4 countries and 100 organizations attended the summit in 2017. Over three days attendees got to hear keynote speakers, participate in hands on workshops and hear panel presentations allowing for the opportunity to learn and exchange ideas about how bicycling can be a catalyst for positive social change.
