Post Paris, Post FAST Act: What role biking can play in helping the US meet its new climate goals CM .75
At the COP 21 Paris Climate Summit 194 nations made commitments to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. These Commitments show progress but fall short of the reducing 2-degree Celsius goal. To meet our commitments, the US must address its growing transportation emissions or we will seriously undercut the progress of all other climate actions. What should be the priorities? How to get it done? How can more biking and walking fit in?

Bikes as a Tool of Economic Development in Rural Communities CM .75
Bicycling has the power to resuscitate economically declining small towns. Hear amazing stories of what it took to develop two rural communities through bicycling. Rockmart, GA, was in steep economic decline prior to the construction of the Silver Comet. The addition of this 61.5 mile long non-motorized, multi-use trail has revived towns along the route by drawing nearly 2 million users per year for a regional economic impact of $50 million. Warsaw, MO, a community of 2100, continues to attract cyclists through their creation of mountain bike trails, levee trails, multiuse trails, a major bike/ped bridge crossing and an on-road bicycle route system.

Urban Mountain Bike Ride
The League and MORE, the DC area chapter of the International Mountain Bicycling Association, are teaming up for a tour of our capital's urban single track trails as part of the National Bike Summit & Women's Forum

Meet at the Fort Dupont Activity Center on Fort Dupont Drive, SE off of Randle Circle at 9:15 am for a short pre-ride talk on how mountain bike advocacy fits into the big picture, and how trail systems like Fort Dupont can benefit urban communities. Wheels will be rolling at 10:00 am, so don't be late!

Either a mountain bike or hybrid/cyclocross bike are appropriate for the terrain. The most technical obstacles at the park are gravel surfaces, wooden water bars, and wet leaves. This will be a no drop ride, and all speeds/skill levels are welcome.

The ride will be roughly 12 miles, with optional add ons and bailouts depending on our group. This will be a fun way to learn DC’s only singletrack network and some of the only National Park Service trails open to mountain bikes in the country!
