My name is Marc, and I work over at CJSW 909.FM here at the U of C. Your favorite community radio station. Right? Right. One of our volunteers (amery) has put together an episode of her programme "space + place" focusing on cycling. I thought you guys and gals might dig it:
Bicycling can be fun, but can it be a form of transportation? Today’s show gets behind a growing appetite for cycling as an everyday mobility option. Gil Penalosa, executive director of 8-80 Cities, explains the significance of creating lanes that feel safe enough for someone as young as 8 or as old as 80 to use. Councillor Brian Pincott sheds some light on Calgary’s newly-funded bicycle strategy. Mia Birk, president of Alta Planning + Design and author of Joyride, describes how bikeshare can be a game-changer. And Hans Moor, president of Ottawa’s Citizens for Safe Cycling, talks about the pilot project of Laurier Avenue.
