Cycling has the power to unlock the city—from the short errand to the commute trip, providing dedicated cycling infrastructure creates more opportunities to move safely, efficiently, sustainably, and affordably. Access to cycling is independence.
However, to fully unleash the opportunity for citywide mobility by bicycle, cities have to build complete cycling networks. While we think of the process of changing infrastructure as a years- or even decades-long endeavor, hear from two cities that are rapidly implementing complete cycling networks, fundamentally transforming their streets and unlocking cycling for travelers of all ages and abilities. In this webinar, Alain Boulanger from Paris City Hall and Manuel Calvo from EstudioMC in Sevilla will discuss the social, design, and political aspects of forward-thinking mobility, and share insights on the efforts to elevate the state of bike networks in both cities.
Nicole Payne, Cities for Cycling Program Manager at NACTO, will be moderating the discussion and taking questions from attendees for presenters to address at the end of the session.
This webinar is presented by NACTO’s Global Designing Cities Initiative.
