Savannah to host Georgia Bike Summit

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) –  Savannah will host the inaugural Georgia Bike Summit on Oct. 9 at the Coastal Georgia Center on Fahm Street.

League of American Bicyclists President Andy Clarke will be the keynote speaker.

Attendees will include state and local agencies, off-road enthusiasts, commuters and non-profit organizations, who will look at bicycling-related issues including safety, infrastructure, advocacy and transportation.

Proponents of bicycling want to address Georgia's approach and funding for bicycle projects across the state.

The city of Savannah has partnered with the Savannah Bicycle Campaign to improve bicycling infrastructure and increase bicycling education in the city.

Over the past two years, the city has added nearly 60 bicycle racks downtown, and installed a new bicycle lane on Washington Avenue. It has also sponsored bicycle safety classes and conducted a bicycle census to help guide future improvements.

To register, go to www.georgiabikesummit.org. Early registration ends Oct. 1.

For information about local bicycling advocacy efforts, contract Frank McIntosh with the Savannah Bicycle Campaign at frank@bicyclecampaign.org or 912.272.1074.
