The 2022 PeopleForBikes' collection of education and networking events is largely in-person, designed to bring the industry together and help shape our collective future.
After nearly two years of trying to sustain a sense of community across the bike industry with Zoom breakout rooms, virtual happy hours and forgetting to unmute, PeopleForBikes is delighted to announce our largely in-person 2022 Bicycle Leadership Series. Our collection of education and networking events is designed to bring the bicycle industry and our partners together to help shape the future of bicycling and the bike business. We warmly invite all members of the bicycle industry to join us for these exciting events.
