Published on April 11, 2013Email To Friend    Print Version

untitled.pngLast month at the National Bike Summit retiring U.S. Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood announced that one of the last things on his agenda will be to hold a series of bicycle safety summits. The summits will focus on identifying innovative ideas for improving bicycle safety. The first will be this week in Tampa, Florida and the second will be April 29, here in Minneapolis.

Individuals, organizations and agencies throughout the upper Midwest have been invited. Here in Minneapolis, the Bicycle Alliance of Minnesota (BikeMN) will be participating and presenting some of their programs.

Secretary LaHood's recent blog post on the subject says: "After all, whether you're driving a tractor-trailer, sitting in the back seat of a minivan, or peduntitled_1.pngaling a bike, the road safety you enjoy shouldn't depend on the number of wheels you're riding on."
The City of Minneapolis and MnDOT have been working with staff at U.S. DOT to bring the summit together on short notice.  BikeMN is looking forward to working with Secretary LaHood on this important initiative.  Sign up now  to attend this free event.
