National Bike Summit Week!!

Prepare yourselves for a social media blitz - the Nebraska Delegation is heading off to Washington DC today to attend the National Bike Summit this week! The summit is sponsored by the League of American Bicyclists, and will have over 700 cycling advocates in attendance.

On the agenda: networking, educational seminars, and a day of meetings on Capitol Hill with our congressional representatives. We have meetings confirmed with Lee Terry, Ben Nelson and Mike Johanns.

Attending on your cycling behalf:
Julie Harris, Activate Omaha/Safe Routes to School, OmahaBikes
Tammie Dodge, Activate Omaha, OmahaBikes
Matt Martin, OmahaBikes
Kerri Peterson, Live Well Omaha
Kent McNeil, Trek Bicycle Stores
Jay Thomas, Trek Bicycle Stores

Matt and I will be blogging and twittering our little fingers off while we are there, so make sure you are following us on Twitter (@omahabikes) and here on the blog. Heck, check the OmahaBikes facebook page, too, while you're at it. Feel free to send questions, thoughts to us as well!

We are especially looking forward to the luncheon on Wednesday when we will be picking up our Bike Friendly Business award, and those of the other Omaha recipients!
