What you'll learn in this society class:

Over 800,000 New Yorkers are now riding a bicycle regularly (NYC DOT). As the subways falter, transit fares increase and the streets grow ever more congested, cycling offers a more efficient way to get around the city, becoming a key part of the city’s commuting network. 

However, cyclists’ attempts to share the streets with cars and pedestrians continue to stir intense community debates around issues of safety and regulation. How can we rethink the relationship between cycling and the city for the benefit of all? 

Join us for a conversation with urban planners, biking advocates and experts about how New York City could achieve a shared “right to the road” for everyone, on two wheels or otherwise. Featuring NYC Council Member Antonio Reynoso andJudi Desire of Uptown & Boogie Bicycle Advocacy, moderated by Streetsblog editor-in-chief Gersh Kuntzman.

Additional speakers to be announced, check back or join our email list for updates. 

This talk accompanies our new exhibition, Cycling in the City: A 200-Year History.
