After reading Mobility Lab Contributor Ralph Buehler’s City Cycling book, I am looking forward to hearing more from him at this upcoming lecture series. Ralph’s insight into the growth of urban bike transportation blends his background in academics, research, and real-world experience and it will be great to see him applying this to the Washington D.C. area. Some questions I hope Ralph can address are:
- When planning for complete streets and separated bike infrastructure, how do we address the tendency for citizens to be resistant to change?
- Are our streets getting safer or more dangerous for cyclists? The infrastructure is improving, and safety in numbers is helpful, but distracted and aggressive driving are on the rise.
- How important is it to get more women biking?
- Is our region too humid for everyday biking to become more popular?
Join Ralph on Thursday, September 12 in Arlington to hear more about all this.
