Announcing the Second Great MoCo Bike Summit

Montgomery County is home to some of the region’s best trails and most avid bikers. We have a robust bicycle culture that is growing stronger each year. Yet, there is much more to do.

To continue our progress, we will be celebrating a Second Great MoCo Bike Summit on June 6, 2015, following up on the inaugural Summit last year. The Washington Area Bicyclist Association (WABA), Montgomery County Planning (MNCPPC), Montgomery County Department of Transportation (MCDOT), and I will be teaming up again to host an interactive discussion on bicycling in the County. This will be a great opportunity for you to interact directly with County elected and transportation planning leaders to help shape the future of biking in the County.

Will you be able to make it?
