The 2017 California Bicycle Summit is our biannual gathering of a diverse group of people from around the state—and around the world!— including bicycle advocates, planners, bicycle industry representatives, elected officials, and activists for racial, gender, and economic equity. In 2015 at our summit in San Diego participants shared their successes and challenges in promoting equity and community building through bicycling; planners and policymakers shared exciting changes afoot in the private and public sectors; and all of us participated in challenging discussions on how the bicycle advocacy movement can better include and benefit California’s diverse communities.
