In June of 2019, MassBike and Mass in Motion hosted three regional bike summits in Worcester, Salem, and Springfield. These seminar style events featured experts in fields such as community organizing, engineering, equity, education, land use planning. Each speaker shared their knowledge through the lens of public health with the goal of building capacity, sharing resources and best practices related to bicycling for Mass in Motion coordinators and other aligned partners.

With the help of our Central Mass, North Shore, and Connecticut River Valley Chapters we had three full days of fantastic content that we have shared with you below. For those of you who were able to attend in person, the slide decks and videos are a great refresher and for those who were unable to attend, we hope you enjoy the presentations!
