At the Symposium you get to meet and share information with advocates, planners, state and local officials, and community leaders who want more bike lanes, wider sidewalks, better trails and a statewide COMPLETE STREETS policy. Best of all, you will have the opportunity to tell your local representatives your story of why better and safer bicycle and pedestrian access is important where you live.
We look forward to seeing you there.
