The Bicycle Tour Network holds an annual national conference that allows members to meet and network with one another. The conference includes lectures, interactive sessions, group discussions and breakouts with a variety of topics related to the successful and safe administration of cycling events. The Bicycle Tour Network, formerly the National Bicycle Tour Directors Association, was formed more than 20 years ago by a small core of ride directors for professional development, marketing and networking purposes.
BRAIN editors, staff, sponsors and guests will ride bikes to visit IBDs in the Los Angeles area in mid-November, 2015.
This year's event will not only focus on the more technically orientated topics but also on Corporate Responsibility in its many aspects. During the two-day conference the audience will have the opportunity to interactively participate in workshops and raise questions to the keynote speakers with regard to circular manufacturing, lean production, reduction of labor intensive production as well as workforce education and human-centered manufacturing.
