Keynote Speaker

Elizabeth River Trail

Bill Nesper 4:15

Community Ride 5:30

Municipalities, businesses, and other organizations have a vested interest in the bikeability of their communities, as research has shown that these types of communities stimulate the local economy and are the places people want to live, work and visit. Bill Nesper will describe benefits and key building blocks of vibrant, bicycle-friendly places

“Bicycling is more than a practical, costeffective solution to many municipal challenges.

It’s an opportunity to make your community a vibrant destination for residents and visitors — a place where people don’t just live and work, but thrive.”
