CTS kicked off our annual fall webinars on September 20 with a special event focused on cycling for sustainable cities. During the webinar, guest speakers Ralph Buehler from Virginia Tech and John Pucher from Rutgers University explored how to make city cycling safe, practical, and convenient for a broad spectrum of ages, genders, and abilities.
Buehler and Pucher discussed the latest cycling trends and policies around the world and considered specific aspects of cycling. Based on 2019–2020 data from cities around the world, they also examined the impacts of COVID-19 on cycling levels and government policies to promote cycling. If you were unable to attend, a recording is now available on the event web page—we hope you'll check it out!
