How to Increase Cycling and Walking: Lessons from Cities across the Globe
Professor John Pucher of Rutgers University will document the boom in cycling in European and North American cities. John will show that cycling can thrive even in cities with no history or culture of daily, utilitarian cycling, but only if government policies provide safe, convenient, and pleasant cycling conditions. Similarly, government policies are key to encouraging walking and making it safer. Safe infrastructure is a prerequisite, but it must be complemented by other supportive measures.
