American mountain bike advocates will get a chance to meet lawmakers and their staff at the National Bike Summit in Washington, DC, next week on March 4-6. Hundreds of cycling representatives will address advocacy issues related to on and off road riding. The Summit is sponsored by the League of American Bicyclists.
"Mountain and road cyclists come together to lobby as a unified front to preserve trails and trail funding, and advocate for other bicycling issues," is how IMBA's website described the event. Attendees will include IMBA Reps, club leaders, bike shop owners, and mountain bike advocates working on access, recreation and trail funding issues.
