Pro Walk/Pro Bike Sponsors:




It's time for the 14th International Conference on Walking & Bicycling, also known as Pro Walk/Pro Bike 2006. This year's conference will be held in Madison, Wisconsin, from Tuesday, September 5, through Friday, September 8, 2006 at the Monona Terrace. This years promises to be the biggest and best conference yet in this biennial series.

The National Center for Bicycling & Walking's Pro Walk/Pro Bike biennial conference series typically attracts an international gathering of more than 600 bicycle and pedestrian program specialists, advocates, and government leaders committed to improving conditions for bicycling and walking.


Conference participants include federal, state and local agency staff; engineers; planners; transportation officials; educators; public health specialists, park and recreation managers; and advocates who range from executives of international organizations to lay people with an interest in improving the quality of life and health in their community.

The theme for the 2006 conference is "Making Connections". It is based on the recognition that success in bicycle and pedestrian work means getting people from diverse backgrounds to work together on a range of issues: completing street and expanding trail networks; changing land use regulations to foster shorter trips and better connected communities; promoting walking and biking in health, safety, and social justice arenas; and getting bicycle and pedestrian issues included in increasingly complex community plans.
