Colorado Bicycle Summit 2013 delivers with record numbers

Keynote speaker Mia Birk of Alta Planning & Design with Dan Grunig of Bicycle ColoradoNearly 250 people attended this year’s Colorado Bicycle Summit on Feb. 11-12, making it the third sell-out in a row.

The larger venue allowed for more networking and bigger breakout sessions. The Colorado cycling community was well represented at the Capitol, meeting with representatives to show their support for bicycling.

We were excited to see people from all over the state again this year. Colorado Springs, Durango, Aspen, Fort Collins, Aurora and other cities sent groups. Some of Colorado’s biggest bicycling events and organizers, including the USA Pro Challenge, Team Evergreen and bikeMS, attended.

We’re hearing great feedback from our attendees–75% rated the summit as excellent and a majority said they’ll return in 2014. We’ve also received helpful comments about how to make 2014 even better.

Thanks to our sponsors for their support!
