Join us for the second Idaho Walk Bike Summit at the Idaho State Capitol building! Advocates, city staff, transportation professionals, planners, and elected officials from all over the state will come together to share information, learn from one another, and get to know each other. Our goal is to provide education and training to a diverse audience through a selection of relevant topics on bicycle and pedestrian design, advocacy, land use, funding options, health and wellness, and more. We wish to increase participants’ effectiveness at creating safe and accessible environments for walking or biking, whether that is at a city, county, regional, or state level.

Idaho Walk Bike Summit attendees represent a spectrum of people from a variety of communities who are engaged in bicycling and walking. While the Summit will be held in Boise, we want small, rural communities well represented to share successes and challenges they face locally.

Many great speakers, workshops, ideas, and loads of fun – we look forward to seeing you there.
