Bike Chat with Tyler Golly: Backwards to Slo-Mo to Fast Forward!
October 3, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pmFree
Edmonton has come a long way in a short while for cycling. After a couple of false starts, this Canadian city the size of Auckland is now creating a full-scale downtown grid of protected cycleways virtually overnight – building at lightning speed, and all in one go!
The big question for Auckland: could we see the same kind of fast-forward progress here??
Come and learn from our special guest Tyler Golly, who headed sustainable transportation for the City of Edmonton and developed the Downtown Bike Grid with Stantec design consultancy.
Tuesday 3 October
Ellen Melville Hall, Freyberg Place
5.30 – 7.30pm
Tyler’s presentation will be followed by a lively panel discussion, led by Auckland’s Design Champion Ludo Campbell-Reid:
- Kathryn King, Manager of Walking, Cycling and Road Safety at Auckland Transport
- Barb Cuthbert, Chair & Spokesperson at advocacy group Bike Auckland
- Jeremy Hansen, Editor of the urban weekly, Paperboy
Complimentary drinks & nibbles before and after the event – RSVP via Eventbrite.
This event is brought to you by Bike Auckland, the non-profit organisation working for a better city for bikes, in conjunction with Auckland Council’s Auckland Design Office.
