On Thursday, March 16, 2017, bicycle, active transportation and Safe Routes to School advocates from throughout the state will once again gather in Saint Paul for the seventh annual Minnesota 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. Attendees will hear from leaders in state and local government (including members of the Minnesota Mayoral Active Transportation Caucus), legislators, and other experts in the morning. 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 your legislators. Appointment times with specific legislators will be posted the morning of the Bike Summit to assist you in mapping your day. Please plan to attend a meeting with your legislator even if you are not able to attend the full Summit.
