Cycling for Sustainable Cities

Friday, May 7 - 5:00 PM


Celebrate Bike Month (May, 2021) with some inspiring stories about how to make cycling safer for everyone!

Cycling is the most sustainable means of urban travel, practical for most short- and medium-distance trips, as well as for recreation and exercise. Cycling promotes physical, social, and mental health, helps reduce car use, enhances mobility and independence, and is economical for both public and personal budgets.

Researchers Ralph Buehler & John Pucher will talk about their new book, Cycling for Sustainable Cities (MIT Press), which describes ways to make city cycling safe, practical, and convenient for all ages and abilities. They will include trends and policies, and share examples from across America and around the world–with cases similar to our own communities.

PEC is excited to host this free online event which will take place May 7 at 5-6pm (advance registration required).

Update: Great News! Thanks to an anoymous donor, the Jefferson Madison Regional Library (Market Street branch) has free copies of the book, while supplies last!!
