Annual Utah Bike Summit Addresses Streets, Trails, and Utah’s Future After Record Years of Outdoor Recreation, a Bike Boom, and Transportation Limitations

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (January 31, 2022) — The last few years have been an incredible indicator of the great joy and necessity of bicycles in and across Utah. Bike Utah’s annual Utah Bike Summit, taking place April 19 in Layton, brings national and local experts together to share their perspectives on where we’re at, where we’re going, and how we can best get there on bikes. A primary focus of the summit is safety, accessibility, equity, and community development that includes safe roads and trail systems for bike commuters of all experience levels and socio-economic status.

“This year’s summit will include traditional cycling discussions and activities as well as a social justice lens, giving mind to how some urban planning concepts directly impact or exacerbate mental health concerns,” said Jenn Oxborrow, executive director of Bike Utah. “By working collaboratively with partners—from planning to first response to education and mental health—we are better able to build and maintain safe spaces for everyone to ride.

Held at the Davis Convention Center, the one-day summit will feature nationally renowned Robin Mazumder as the keynote, a variety of breakout sessions, and will close with a family-friendly Cycling Social.

Registration for the summit is $150, with a $50 early bird discount available through January 29. Students may register at any time for $100. The Cycling Social is $30 per person.
