National Bike Summit Ride

The National Bike Summit wrapped up in Washington D.C. a few weeks ago, and Commute by Bike writer Ted Johnson was on hand attending sessions, networking with other bike advocates, and writing up some good reports. I recommend you check out Part 1 and Part 2 of his reports, as well as the wrap up. Ted was among three advocates from from Arizona, one of which included Ann Chaneka of Tucson. One of the highlights of the National Bike Summit is the Congressional Bike Ride. In the video below, the Congressional Bike Ride of 2011 honored Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords of Tucson, who was injured in a shooting in Tucson earlier this year. Chaneka is highlighted in the video below from Streetfilms. As a Tucsonan myself, it is pretty powerful to see so many people out on bicycles in honor of Giffords and in support of bicycles in general. I’d like to get myself to the National Bike Summit in 2012, that’s for sure!National Bike Summit 2011: Congressional Bike Ride (for Rep. Gabrielle Giffords) from Streetfilms on Vimeo.
