April 13, 2012 (Toronto, ON) – Register today for the upcoming Ontario Bike Summit! In two weeks, (April 24-25th) cycling stakeholders and decision makers from across North America will gather in Toronto to be inspired with valuable lessons that will help us all shape positive outcomes for cycling in our communities. The discounted rate at our conference hotel, the Hyatt is only guaranteed until this Friday so make your reservations today to avoid disappointment. Information on the Summit is available HERE.
There is something at this year’s Summit for everyone. Check out our list of 10 amazing workshops HERE – designed to send you home with practical advice, the latest on innovative infrastructure solutions, models for community engagement, and how to organize a Bike Summit in your community.
If you’re looking for decision makers – we’ve got them, from Transportation Minister Bob Chiarelli’s keynote address, to our political panel with representatives from Ontario’s political parties, to the opening address from Toronto City Councilor Denzil Minan Wong.
If you’re looking to be inspired – we’ve got that covered too with international speakers Andreas Rohl – Manager of Copenhagen’s Cycling Program, London England’s Alexandra Goodship (Senior Cycling Delivery Program Manager, Transport for London) and from California, April Economides, Program Manager of the City of Long Beach’s Bicycle Friendly Business Districts who will inspire you with case studies on how you can work with local businesses in your community to ensure cycling is a key part of economic development.
Concerned about removing parking spaces to make room for bikes? Let April show you how they conquered those challenges – and more, in Long Beach, host community for the Pro Walk, Pro Bike 2012 conference.
Closer to home, hear success stories from communities across Ontario who are prioritizing bikes – and reaping the benefits.
