Shifting Gears is BikeTexas' biennial policy presentation that takes place during the legislative session. We invite an active transportation expert to speak to the Texas legislature about specific policy areas and how active transportation can benefit Texas. Frequently, the Shifting Gears speaker will also give lectures to the public.

 

Past Shifting Gears speakers:

2015: Brigadier General Bill Weber

2013: John Pucher

2011: Gil Peñalosa

2009: Enrique Peñalosa
