Recycle-A-Bicycle’s Youth Bike Summit is a three day gathering geared toward youth, bicycles, education, and advocacy. This national conference aims to bring people from different disciplines to explore, network, and learn how bicycling can be a legitimate and safe form of transportation for today’s youth. Planned with a Steering Committee of officers and educators from youth bike education programs throughout the country, the Youth Bike Summit will offer a dynamic inter-generational exchange through educational workshops and panel discussions that are both interactive and practical. The Youth Bike Summit will also provide tools and information on fundraising and best practices for schools that wish to incorporate bikes into the physical fabric of the learning environment. Learn more about the Youth Bike Summit in this video by Streetfilms. This year’s conference will feature a “staff track” of workshops led by officers, administrators, managers, and instructors from organizations dedicated to working with youth and bikes. These sessions will highlight practical issues such as fundraising, challenges, and best practices.
