Thanks to all that joined us for the 2018 Illinois Bike Summit! Our next summit will be held in 2020. Slides from the breakout sessions are available under Program & Session Topics below, and linked to speakers’ names.

Join us on Monday, May 7 at the University of Illinois at Chicago for a day of learning and networking with over 300 bicycle advocates, planners, engineers, transportation agency staff, and other from around the state. With a range of session topics – from bikeway design and tips to advocacy and community engagement – the summit offers strategies to help you make progress in your town.

We’re pleased to announce that Chicago Department of Transportation Commissioner Rebekah Scheinfeld and Illinois Transportation Secretary Randy Blankenhorn will participate as keynote speakers. IDOT is also tentatively scheduled to announce the Illinois Transportation Enhancement Program grant winners at the Summit.

The Summit features keynote speakers, breakout sessions organized in three tracks, coffee talks, mobile workshops, lunch, advocacy awards, and a networking reception. Continuing education credits will also be available for professional planners and engineers.
