City Conversations | Building the Cycling City

September 20, 2018 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm

With 22.5 million bicycles for a population of 18 million, the Netherlands is undoubtedly the world’s top cycling nation. However, there remains an erroneous belief that – while the Dutch can provide encouragement – their methods are unrepeatable, and their results unattainable.

Miles of separated cycle tracks, dedicated bike streets, and off-street paths are something that only works for “them” and not “us.” But even they started somewhere. Can the country that has spent decades building comfortable cycling infrastructure provide a blueprint for Metro Vancouver?

To explore the issue, we’ve invited Chris and Melissa Bruntlett, founders of Modacity and authors of Building the Cycling City: The Dutch Blueprint for Urban Vitality. Joining them will be Councillor Linda Buchanan from the City of North Vancouver and Kati Tamashiro, Section Head for Active Transportation with the City of Vancouver. As always, bring your questions, comments, and your lunch!
