The goal of Harrisonburg & Rockingham Bike-Walk Summits is to develop partnerships and to increase coordination between the City, County, and other stakeholders to make our region a great biking and walking community to live in and visit!
The 2013 Harrisonburg & Rockingham Bike-Walk Summit builds on the momentum from last year’s Harrisonburg Action 2020 event, which brought together advocates, planners, and local officials to examine funding possibilities, exchange ideas, and coordinate future priorities for the development of bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure in the Harrisonburg-Rockingham region.
