It is the only event where bicycle advocates from northern and southern Nevada meet. The Nevada Bicycle Coalition will be there in force this year, planning strategy for the year’s activities, especially for the coming legislative session, and looking for like-minded, passionate bicyclists.

Advocating for bicyclists has never been more important. While cities across the country are discovering and promoting the benefits of bicycling, Congress passed a transportation bill, called MAP-21, that reduces funding for bicycle facilities and gives states discretion to divert even those limited funds to other projects.

If you care about bicycling, you need to attend the advocates networking event at the Summit. As an advocate, you can get a “scholarship” that will cover your registration fee. In prior years there has been a no-host bar and munchies to enjoy while you mingle with others who share your passion for bicycling.

The 2012 Bicycle Pedestrian Summit is on December 11 at the Texas Station Casino. I urge you to attend.

Contact Mike Colety (Mike.Colety@kimley-horn.com) or Janie Fromm (jfromm@dot.state.nv.us) to register.

If you have any questions, call Terry McAfee at 775-287-7142.
