Wyoming Active Transportation – Bike Walk Trails Summit Postponed Until 2021
After careful consideration of the circumstances surrounding the coronavirus pandemic during the past two months and considerable deliberation we have decided to delay the 2020 Wyoming Active Transportation – Bike Walk Trails Summit and reschedule it for 2021.
Our primary concern in our deliberations was attendee safety, and with so many unknowns about the pandemic and when it will be safe to once again gather in larger groups, we decided it’s best if we postpone the Summit. By re-scheduling to 2021, hopefully we will be past any pandemic concerns and the Summit will be enjoyable, worthwhile, and safe for all.
The Summit will still take place at the Tate Pumphouse in Casper and we will soon announce the new date in June of 2021. The agenda will feature the latest developments in Active Transportation, biking and walking and trails. We anticipate having similar speakers, presenters, and workshops – and hopefully, some beautiful late spring weather in Casper.
For those of you who registered for the 2020 event, we thank you for your support and hope to see you in Casper in June of 2021. If you were not registered, we hope that you will plan on attending what we anticipate will be a fun, educational and rewarding event. We will let you know when the actual dates are finalized, so you can mark your calendars and “Save the Date!”
Over the next year, as you continue with active transportation plans and projects in your community, please feel free to contact us with ideas or topics you’d like to see discussed when we gather together in June of 2021. Also, we are exploring the possibility of holding virtual events later in the year, so keep up with the latest by signing up for our newsletters, visiting our websites or following our Facebook pages.
In the meantime, we hope that you will be able to stay happy and healthy by getting out and enjoying some form of active transportation and/or outdoor recreation. Wyoming has so much to offer in that regard and we will keep working to improve those opportunities in our communities around the state.
