Georgia Bikes Summit
September 17 - September 19
Georgia Bikes has announced that its 11th Georgia Bikes Summit will be offered entirely online from September 17-19, 2020. The event includes presentations and breakout sessions of interest to bicycle advocates, community members, business leaders, planners and engineers, elected officials, and government staff members. In light of the increased bicycling during the pandemic, Georgia Bikes decided to make the summit FREE to attend.
The keynote speaker is Courtney Williams, founder of The Brown Bike Girl, a consultancy that works with institutions to increase bicycling access and adoption within communities of color, and bicycling education for all. She will be speaking about her role as the People’s Bike Mayor in New York City, COVID changes in active transportation, and the role of racial justice in the bicycle advocacy world.
Other session topics include bike network planning, development of cycling programs for young people, preventing traffic crashes, and serving the needs of people who depend on their bicycles for daily transportation.
