More on Bike Battles Talk

The FABB-sponsored public talk hosted by the Tyson’s Microsoft Store on Tuesday, January 9, 2018, will focus on a major early 20th century policy and funding battle that might have changed the face of American transportation—if not American history—if it had succeeded. 

You may know about the “Good Roads” movement in which bikers allied with farmers to create paved shared routes through the countryside. But are you aware that early in the 20th century there was a movement to include sidepaths—in effect, protected bike lanes—along newly constructed public roads and streets in urban areas? Come hear James Longhurst's talk to find out more about this movement and the lessons it provides for contemporary policy planning. 

In the meantime, check out this video summarizing Dr. Longhurst’s book, Bike Battles: A History of Sharing the American Road. It gives a taste of the fascinating detail he will be providing during his talk. 

Seats are still available. Go now to our EventBrite page and reserve your place.
