Cycle forum: London cycling as public transport?

City University have a lively panel discussion, open to the public, about London's current cycling trends on Wed 26 October at Rm A130, College Building, 293-201St John Street, London EC1V 0HB, UK. To reserve a place email environment@city.ac.uk


Panel discussion 15:00-16:30
Networking reception to follow from 16:30-17:30

With the number of cyclists growing by the day in London, and due to rise even more as we move towards the Olympics 2012, it begs to ask the question - are the current provisions (such as Barclay's Cycle Hire, Cycle Superhighways and cycle-to-work schemes) enough? What are the risks associated with having so many cyclists on the roads? How do London's motorists feel about the increase in cyclists? A number of cycling experts will be on hand to discuss these issues and more. Following a brief presentation from each of the speakers, the floor will be opened up for Q&A with the audience and panel members.

Speakers:
(Chair) Professor Richard Verrall, Pro Vice-Chancellor, Strategy and Planning, City University London
Tom Bogdanowich, Campaigns & Development Manager, London Cycling Campaign
Dr Colin Black, Transport Consultant, Contemporary Transport
David Dansky, Head of Training & Development, Cycle Training UK
Dr Liza Schuster, Lecturer, Sociology, City University London (and City cyclist)
Alexandra Goodship, Cycling Delivery Planning Manager, Transport for London

This event, in association with the City Collaborative Transport Hub, forms part of City University London's third annual Green City Week activities.
