We were disappointed yesterday to find out that Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood is leaving the Obama administration, but, don’t worry: You’ll have your chance to cheer his accomplishments.
Since his appointment, LaHood hasn’t missed a single National Bike Summit — and he’s not starting now.
We’re honored to announce that the man Congressman Earl Blumenauer has crowned “the best Secretary of Transportation we’ve ever had” will be one of our opening speakers for the 2013 National Bike Summit.
Of course, nobody know that Bicycling Means Business better than LaHood. At last year’s Summit, the Secretary stressed the connection between a 21st-Century transportation system and a growing U.S. economy. To LaHood, there’s a direct link between safer streets for bicyclists and better jobs for our friends and neighbors.
What parting words of wisdom will LaHood have for bicycle advocates? Register now for the National Bike Summit — and join us as we thank the Secretary for four incredible years of service.
