For the third year, the NBDA will grant scholarships to participants who take time out of their stores to attend this important industry event. The program is designed to support the cause of cycling in America by making it affordable for NBDA dealers to participate.

For 2010, the NBDA has committed up to $30,000 in scholarships: up to $1000 for first-time attendees and up to $500 for returning bike dealers.

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.
