    If you haven’t registered yet, time is running out!

    The 2011 summit showed everyone the power of bringing together people with a passion for biking. In 2012 we’re offering the chance to learn about a broad array biking topics.

    Sessions will include Federal Funding and Legislative Updates; Youth and Cycling; Bicycle Friendly Businesses; and Equity and Social Justice. We’ll learn how the First State Trails and Pathway Plan has progressed over the past year and how the the Dover Bike Plan is being put into action. We’ll even help Dover to become designated as a bicycle friendly community during a workshop on how to apply.

    Activities for both Friday and Saturday are listed below:

    • Registration and continental breakfast will begin at 8:30 a.m. The main summit program will begin at 9 a.m.
