The NBDA, National Bicycle Dealers Association, will grant up to $30,000 in scholarships to first-time and returning bike dealers who participate at the 2010 National Bike Summit in Washington, D.C. March 9-11. The program is designed to support the cause of cycling in America by making it affordable for NBDA dealers to participate. Applications must be in by January 18th.
The National Bike Summit is produced by the League of American Bicyclists, and is where advocates, industry executives and education experts gather to learn about the issues involving bicycling in America, and to speak up for bicycling on Capitol Hill by meeting with members and staff of the House of Representatives and U.S. Senate by pre-arranged appointment.

Unrelated to the National Bike Summit, the NBDA, in partnership with the League of American Bicyclists, has developed a rider training program, Bicycling Skills 123, designed to support NBDA member dealers as they encourage cycle safety within their community.
The League provides the materials and training for bicycle store owners and employees to teach safe riding to their customers in short and entertaining classes. Several NBDA member dealers were involved in creating and refining the program and have used it successfully to help people ride safely and with confidence.
