Join the Maryland Department of Planning and the Smart Growth Network at 1 pm on Thursday, July 16, for a webinar that will discuss how cities are adapting to a surge in cycling and how they are re-envisioning streets to accommodate the shift.
Many cities have seen an increase in cycling, e-cycling, electric scooter, and other forms of micromobility over the past several years. The pandemic has only served to boost those numbers as commuters seek to avoid close quarter forms of public transportation and those networks run at reduced capacity. Melissa Bruntlett and Chris Bruntlett, authors of Building the Cycling City: The Dutch Blueprint for Urban Vitality, will join the Maryland Department of Planning and the Smart Growth Network to discuss how cities across the globe are adapting their streets to this new reality and are working to ensure this ‘bike boom’ sticks long-term. Participants of the live webinar are eligible for 1.5 AICP CM credits.
