Ideas: cycle and walking friendly cities

From Ideas, 11:06 am on 26 February 2012

Academics, town planners, and cycle advocates this week met in Hastings for the annual Walking and Cycling Conference. Jeremy Rose talks to Roger Geller about the transformation of Portland into America’s most cycle-friendly city; and Chris Laidlaw talks to public health professors Alistair Woodward and Hank Weiss about the extraordinary health benefits of cycling and walking and what can be done to make our cities safer for those choosing to leave their cars at home.
