Description 

Getting out of a car and onto a bike is one of the best things you can do for the climate and your personal health. Bike lanes are growing in American cities from New York City to Houston, the country’s oil and gasoline capitol. But many potential cyclists are still worried about their personal safety and breathing bus exhaust. In another realm, cycling is also a way for people to raise awareness and money for their climate work.

What are cities doing to take cycling to the next level? Is bike sharing really displacing taxi rides? How is pedal power helping the broader climate movement?

Join us for a conversation about cycling as a way to change urban America and cut carbon emissions.
