State of Cycling in Philadelphia

Since graduating, I’ve had a chance to refocus my energy on an event. Nick and I have been working with Rachel Aland, on organizing a panel discussion for this Thursday at Next American City’s Storefront for Urban Innovation here in Philly.

We’ve got representatives from the city government and police, local advocates, community members, and bike messenger community. We will be discussing the benefits and challenges to cycling; also, how the city is responding, and could respond in the future, to the recent growth of cyclists.

The event will open with a little mixing and mingling while some slides of relevant and interesting information is played. We’ll then move into the panel discussion. This will be a structured conversation between our respective representatives regarding the topics above. Finally, we’ll close with a moderated Q&A session.

It should be a fun and informative time. Please come, and RSVP to let us know!
