About this Event
Gertjan Hulster, Arne Gielen, Marco te Brömmelstroet and Jeroen Dirks/2017/57 min/Transportation
FILM DESCRIPTION: There are more bicycles than people in the Netherlands, but the Dutch don’t seem to notice what a special bike culture they have. Going beyond the obvious health and economic benefits of cycling, “Why We Cycle” explores the egalitarian nature of cycling, as well as its less-obvious effects on a city’s planning and development, its residents, and society as a whole.
After the screening, watch the recorded conversation with Gertjan Hulster and Arne Gielen, Directors of "Why We Cycle."
Discussion was facilitated by Burrell Poe, Program Manager at The Goldin Institute. Local alternative transportation advocates were on hand to share their knowledge and action opportunities:
- Trevor Clarke, Working Bikes, Executive Director
- Shameka Turner, CDOT Chicago’s SAFE (Streets Are For Everybody) Ambassadors, Bike Ambassador
- Amanda Woodall, CDOT Divvy Bike Sharing, Program Director
