America's Great Outdoors: Secretary Salazar Addresses National Bike Summit

Office of the Secretary

Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar delivered the keynote at the 2011 National Bike Summit in Washington, D.C. Hosted by the League of American Bicyclists (LAB) with support from the International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA), the annual four-day summit attracts more than 800 cyclists who come together to promote bicycle-friendly legislation.

This year's theme, “Acting on a Simple Solution,” emphasizes the importance of reconnecting Americans to the great outdoors by improving access to our public lands, a key objective in President Obama's America's Great Outdoors Initiative.
