Talking About Bikelash in Your City

Six months ago, Dr. Doug Gordon and Dr. Aaron Naparstek charmed audiences at the 2014 National Bike Summit with a great routine called "Moving Beyond the Bikelash," sharing what they've learned from the pushback to New York City's bike network expansion.

So last week, while at the Pro-Walk Pro-Bike Pro-Place conference, I thought it would be interesting to ask advocates from across the country about the state of bikelash in their cities and how they combat it. Here's what they told me.

National Bike Summit 2014: United Spokes

Usually I have a rule to limit conference wrap-up videos to three to four minutes in length. But there were so many inspiring, great and laugh-out-loud funny moments at this year's League of American Bicyclists' National Bike Summit 2014, I felt it important to pack in all of the coverage we could, especially since the Women's Bicycling Forum has grown to be a large part of the event.

So sit back and enjoy many of the faces and fun that made this year's #NBS14 a big hit.  Here's just a few of the gems you may only see here on Streetfilms!

- Watch as We Bike NYC arrives in DC after a 262 mile bike ride from NYC!

- Watch as U.S. DOT Secretary Anthony Foxx jokes about riding in the Tour de France!

- Listen as Dr. Naparstek & Dr. Gordon diagnose whether you have BIKELASH in your city!

- See Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto as he unexpectedly nominates Bike Pittsburgh's Scott Bricker to the regional transportation board!

- Hear from Dr. Adonia Lugo about how the League of American Bicyclists' Equity Council is making great strides in diversifying the attendees and topics at this year's summit!

And so much more.
