Some have called me a professional conference attendee because I do love a good conference and the further from home the better.

This will be the exception as the Open Streets National Summit will be held in Los Angeles, April 4-6. Because I’m a member of the Alliance for Biking and Walking, I got a discount, too.

Of course, Open Streets is another word for CicLAvia, or however they are spelled and pronounced in your city, so the Summit is all about how to create and manage these take-back-the-streets events.
