Biking the Suburbs: A Bicycle Conference for Southeast Pennsylvania County Cyclists

If you are a cyclist who lives or works in Delaware, Chester, Montgomery or Bucks counties and wants to become more involved in advocating for improved roads and other facilities that accommodate bicyclists, this event is for you!

The Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia is sponsoring a one day conference on Saturday, February 12th for cyclists to learn more about how to make biking better in the suburbs of Philadelphia.

This conference (9am to 3:30pm) will be held at the Spring Mill Corporate Center in Conshohocken.    Montgomery County Commissioner Joseph M. Hoeffle will be the keynote speaker.  The conference will feature sessions with county planners from each of the four counties and issue briefings on topics ranging from chip and tar, the future of the region's trail network to the National Bike Summit.  The agenda is here.

This conference is being generously sponsored by the William Penn Foundation and the Central Bucks Cycling Club.  The meeting location is right next to the Schuylkill River Trail, the Spring Mill transit stop, and valet bike parking will be available.  Lunch will be provided and the event is free, although donations are certainly welcome.  We invite anyone who signs up and isn't already a member of the Bicycle Coalition to join.  Space is limited, so sign up today!
