Limited Capacity seats available

During his 2017 State of the State address, Governor Cuomo announced plans for the Empire State Trail. This will include 350 miles of new trails across the state that will complete a 750-mile trail network, the largest in the nation, by 2020. This is obviously a game changer for recreational cycling in New York and we couldn’t be more excited for it. In this workshop, we invite planners, advocates and professionals attending the summit to help identify the opportunities and challenges that will arise while completing this trail network. With everyone who is attending’s collective knowledge and experience regarding all things bicycling, this workshop provides a real opportunity for cooperation from agencies and organizations across the state to make the Empire State Trail the best network possible.
