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.

The Inaugural National Women’s Bicycling Summit

The first National Women’s Bicycling Summit took place last week in Long Beach, California. It was tacked on to the Pro Walk/Pro Bike conference and drew some of the same participants, a bunch of new faces and whole lot of positive energy.

This summit provided women cycling advocates the opportunity to talk about topics that aren't often programmed into bicycle conferences.  The question driving the summit was: What do we need to do on a national level to get more gender equality in the bicycling world? Some specific break-out topics in this year's conference discussed family biking, equity, marketing, and participating in the political process.

The energy and connections built in this first national women's bicycling summit will lead to more organized discussions on these topics in conferences to come. The goal: By 2025, 50 percent of U.S. cyclists will be women.
