This week, more than 700 bicycling advocates converged in Washington — despite a snowstorm that closed down the federal government on Monday cancelled thousands of flights — to learn from each other and compare notes from the past year.
Tuesday, as the summit wound down and participants started gearing up for Wednesday’s Lobby Day on Capitol Hill, Jeff and I were joined by Doug Gordon of Brooklyn Spoke , Suepinda Keith of Triangle Bikeworks  in Chapel Hill, and Jonathan Maus of Bike Portland  for this very special 45-minute Bike Summit  episode of the podcast.
The Women’s Forum  is in its third year. The League’s Equity Advisory Council  came into being just before last year’s summit. These voices, historically not at the center of the national conversation about bicycling, are coming to the fore.
The five of us talk in this, our lucky 13th episode, about how effectively the movement is transitioning to a more inclusive approach, and we share some of the highlights of the summit, including some truly incredible work happening everywhere from Memphis  to LA  to Afghanistan .
