BOULDER, Colo. (BRAIN) — PeopleForBikes' virtual Bicycle Leadership Conference opens Tuesday. The organization also has announced some details of a in-real-life Bicycle Leadership Conference, the first since 2019, which is planned for March 21-23, 2022 in Dana Point, California. 

Topics for the spring conference will include new riders and new consumer behaviors, trade and tariff issues, global supply chain and labor challenges, diverse talent attraction and retention, public lands issues and all things electric bicycles — access, legislation, regulations, incentives and battery recycling, the group said.

"We expanded the Bicycle Leadership Conference to become the world's foremost education and networking event for the bicycling industry," said PeopleForBikes Vice President of Business Network Ravi Rajcoomar. "We're so excited to get everyone back together in beautiful Southern California to learn, grow and direct the future of bicycling."

Notable keynote speakers for the 2022 BLC include Guy Raz, host of NPR's top-rated podcasts "How I Built This" and "Wisdom From the Top," and best-selling author Polly LaBarre, founding member of Fast Company and co-author of "Mavericks at Work: Why the Most Original Minds in Business Win." 

PeopleForBikes' 2022 Leadership Series is a collection of education and networking events that will include an Electric Bicycle Summit in May, an eMTB Summit in September, and a new event for the industry's next generation of leaders in mid-October held in Bentonville, Arkansas. The series will also include two D.C. Congressional Fly-Ins in April and June that are part of PeopleForBikes' ongoing efforts to elevate the voice of the bike industry on Capitol Hill, educate policymakers on the many benefits of prioritizing bicycling and influence key policy decisions at the federal level.

PeopleForBikes also will offer a virtual Bicycle Leadership Conference in June 2022, as well as a monthly industry webinar series available to PeopleForBikes members. More information on the March BLC is available from Rajcoomar, who can be reached at
