- 2:00 p.m.
This three-day event, organized by Recycle-A-Bicycle, is geared toward youth, bikes education, and advocacy. Whether you're a student, educator, or advocate, there is much to learn through this dynamic, inter-generational exchange. This national conference offers a keynote presentation, 15 engaging workshops, hands-on activities, a thought-provoking visioning session with youth and adults working in communities near and far. By creating a space where ideas from bicyclists of all ages can be heard, we seek to create a more inclusive national dialogue that addresses the issues, rights, and concerns of all bicyclists.
Keynote addresses by Enrique Penalosa, former Mayor of Bogota, Colombia and Devlynn Chen, Local Spokes Youth Ambassador.
