Cycling the City: The Mainstreaming of Urban Biking

Tue, Apr 4 2017

Cycling is rapidly growing in popularity as a means of getting around North American cities, even winter cities. More and more places are introducing cycling-specific infrastructure to provide safer dedicated routes for cyclists, pedestrians, and motorists. This summer, Edmonton launches its downtown grid of separated bike lanes. Calgary author, journalist, and blogger Tom Babin looks at recent trends and infrastructure developments in urban cycling in Calgary, Edmonton, and around the world.

Presented by: Tom Babin
Tom is a Calgary-based author, journalist, and blogger who has written for the Los Angeles Times, National Post and Explore, and has spoken about cycling all over the world. He is also the author of Frostbike: The Joy, Pain, and Numbness of Winter Cycling.

In Partnership with:
