LAYTON, Utah (April 18, 2022) — Making Utah a better place to ride, for everyone and in all locations around the state, is the focus of Bike Utah’s annual Utah Bike Summit on April 19, 2022. 

Robin Mazumder will be the keynote speaker at the Utah Bike Summit.

The Summit kicks off with Dr. Robin Mazumder whose research on environmental neuroscience demonstrates the ways in which people experience stress in urban environments and the importance of designing cities that support well-being, equity, and our planet. Other sessions focus on equitable, accessible, active transportation as well as the impact of cycling tourism on rural communities. 

Unique to this year’s conference is a cycling session around Layton City where attendees, Layton City employees, and Bike Utah staff will participate in a 45-minute tour around the city to discuss and observe Layton’s goals around first/last mile improvements to the FrontRunner Layton Station, a pedestrian overpass, and active transportation plans for Historic Downtown. 

The Summit will close with a Cycle Social Party, from 3:30 pm–5:30 pm.
