2022 Request for Proposals

The 2022 National Bike Summit will take place March 27-30, 2022, as a hybrid event with options to attend online or in-person in Washington, DC.

All Summit attendees will participate in sessions, plenaries, keynotes, and select Lobby Day Hill meetings virtually, with daily online programming beginning at 1pm ET / 10am PT. Additionally, in-person Summit attendees will have the option to take part in non-virtual group rides, workshops, and other networking opportunities. Maintaining a safe and healthy environment for attendees is our priority so we'll be following CDC and District of Columbia public health measures in place at the time. Further, in-person attendees will be required to provide proof of vaccination.

At the 2022 National Bike Summit, attendees will convene around the theme of Choosing Our Future. As 2021 has presented individuals and institutions with a host of transformational opportunities, there are many choices ahead about how the bike movement can shape the future for the next generation, from climate change to racial equity. With anticipated big wins for investments in biking infrastructure ahead, now is the time to do the work of engaging with new partners, uplifting underserved communities, and ensuring we build networks on the ground and among movements. 

For the 2022 Summit, the League of American Bicyclists invites individuals and organizations to submit proposals to lead discussions or offer expertise on topics that will inspire and help advocates implement a future of our choosing: one that is better for everyone who bikes. 

Proposals can address any topic relevant to the bicycling movement, while the Summit will seek to elevate our collective understanding around making biking better through expanding cycling education, increasing the inclusivity of and access to bicycling through meaningful engagement, and building bike infrastructure for all ages and abilities that (re)connects communities.

Proposals are being accepted for both virtual and in-person formats, including 45-minute virtual breakout sessions or panels, 10-20-minute virtual presentations, as well as 2-hour in-person on-site or mobile workshops. Learn more about the various format types here.

In our efforts to be accountable to our equity, diversity, and inclusion goals across our work, the League has added demographic questions to the RFP. The League strongly encourages all workshop and breakout session organizers who are recruiting additional speakers or presenters to prioritize building a diverse and representative line-up.

All selected speakers and presenters will be compensated for their work with free registration to match the virtual or in-person format of their presentation at the 2022 Summit. Those providing an in-person workshop will have their in-person registration fees waived, while virtual presenters will have their virtual Summit registration fees waived.

The RFP will close on November 1, 2021, at 11:59pm PT. We will inform applicants beginning late November and no later than January 30, 2022, on whether their proposal has been accepted. 

Submit a Proposal Here.
