Roads were not Built for Cars

Roads were not Built for Cars

This webinar provides a historical, contemporary, and future look at roads and their close association with bicycles.

This webinar helped open up the 2015 Bike Month, as Bike to Work Weeks began in locations across the U.S. The author of Roads Were Not Built For Cars, Carlton Reid, dissects the inseparable history of bicycles and roads as we know them, and how understanding this history can bring about greater tolerance and multi-modal use of modern roads. Reid was joined by moderator, Heather Boyer, Built Environment Editor at Island Press and Andy Clarke, Executive Director of League of American Bicyclists, and Martha Roskowski, VP of Local Innovation at PeopleForBikes. The webinar brings context to the importance of bikes on roads, and active, forward-looking examples on biking policy, infrastructure, and biking potential in communities.
