Physical Activity Forum: Bike 2019

  • Edmonton and Calgary (map)

Bike 2019 is a conference to explore and engage in a conversation about the research, policy, and practice around cycling as a mode of active transport.

Day 1: Edmonton

Building an Inclusive Cycling City

In most North American cities, the people who bicycle regularly do not reflect our population as a whole. How do we get more women, people of diverse cultural backgrounds, kids, older adults, and people with mobility limitations cycling and using bikeshare? This presentation will draw on evidence-based research and lessons from practice.

Day 2: Calgary

A Recipe for a Bikeable City

Creating a city where people bike for transportation every day is not as simple as striping a few bike lanes. Drawing on research from planning, engineering, health, and psychology, this presentation will provide ingredients for success.
