Tomorrow, the City of Long Beach will play host to the 2011 L.A. County Bike Summit. The event is co-organized by the Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition and the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health’s RENEW LA County Initiative. This conference will bring together local elected leaders, city managers and staff from a number of the 88 cities that make up LA County, to have a conversation about how to create a more bicycle friendly community. You can view the program for the conference here. Topics slated for discussion include: engineering guidelines and standards, education programs, grant competitiveness, bikes benefiting businesses, bike parking, utilizing collision data, and a whole host of other topics. There will also be bicycle tours of Long Beach’s facilities scattered throughout the day.
We will be tweeting throughout the day and snapping pictures to share with everyone during the event. Be sure to follow us @ladotbikeprog and stay tuned to the LADOT Bike Blog for a complete rap up of the 2011 L.A. County Bike Summit sometime early next week.
