SFBC Presentation: Learning Actively from Copenhagen’s Bicycling Successes

From SFBC:

Join us for a special forum on livable communities, featuring Andreas Røhl, Copenhagen’s esteemed Bicycle Manager. Together, we’ll explore issues of creating more sustainable cities, and learn about the successes and challenges of one of the world’s most bicycle-friendly cities.

Røhl has spent much of the last year in Vancouver, Canada, helping step up plans for greater accessibility by bike and foot. Røhl will be joined by local San Francisco leaders who will share lessons learned from recent visits to other model bicycling cities.

This free event is hosted by the SF Bicycle Coalition and the SF Port. RSVP by Nov 7th at sfbike.org/rsvp.
