Description:

Cycling can play a huge role in creating more sustainable cities. But how do cities support the shift to more trips by bike and ensure everyone gets to enjoy the ride? 

Join us on Tuesday, June 8, from 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm, for a special webinar with two national experts on making cities better for biking: John Pucher and Ralph Buehler, authors of the recent book Cycling for Sustainable Cities. 

In this Active Trans webinar, John Pucher, Ph.D., Professor Emeritus of Urban Planning and Policy Development at Rutgers University and Ralph Buehler, Ph.D, Professor and Chair of Urban Affairs and Planning at Virginia Tech, will explore how cities like Chicago and its suburban communities can make cycling safe, practical, and convenient for all ages and abilities.
