 “Expanding and Exploring”

We are proud to introduce this year’s Colorado Bicycle Summit, featuring an exciting, revamped program! This event is dedicated to educate and empower attendees, identify common bicycling trends and solutions in our communities and set priorities to improve the future of bicycling in Colorado. This year’s theme, Expanding and Exploring, will guide discussions aimed at empowering bicyclists across the state of Colorado. Join us and be a part of making bicycling accessible for everyone, everywhere!

Introducing our inspiring keynote:

Veronica O. Davis, PE, Co-owner and Principal Planning Manager, Nspiregreen LLC and Black Women Bike 


We are excited to welcome Veronica O. Davis, PE as our keynote speaker for this year’s summit. Veronica is a transportation innovator who uses her knowledge to spark progressive social change in communities via the bicycle. As co-founder of Black Women Bike, Veronica pushes the envelope on the image of the bicycling and inclusion. She has been recognized by the White House as a champion for change. Veronica’s message of equity and inclusion, and her advocacy for accessible forms of transportation, apply directly to this year’s theme–and Bicycle Colorado’s goal of–Expanding and Exploring.

Plenary Session: 

Keynote Veronica O. Davis will join our plenary panel with three other innovative leaders who are using the bike as a vehicle for something bigger. Amy Camp will inspire you with stories about harnessing trails for small town economic development, Brett Donelson will discuss how he’s empowered young women to create brighter futures, and Ken Miner will demonstrate how a power boost encourages more people to leave their cars behind. This amazing panel will make you see the bike in new ways.
