Minnesota Bike Summit March 16
On March 16, bicycle, active transportation and Safe Routes to School advocates from throughout the state will once again gather in St. Paul for the seventh annual MN Bike Summit on Capitol Hill.
The day will focus on funding for Safe Routes to School, authorizing and funding state-active transportation programs, making state policies more bike-friendly and more. In the morning, attendees will hear from leaders in state and local governments (including members of the Minnesota Mayoral Active Transportation Caucus), legislators and other experts. After lunch, attendees will cross the street and meet directly with their legislators.
BikeMN will schedule appointments for attendees to meet with their legislators. Morning sessions will include training and coaching on talking with legislators. Appointment times with specific legislators will be posted the morning of the summit to assist people in mapping their day. It is advised attendees plan to meet with their legislators even if they are not able to attend the full summit.
Cost: $15/members and $20/non-members. Location: Christ Lutheran Church, 105 University Ave. W, St Paul. For more information, visit BikeMn.org.
