Biking has a long and winding history, with modern bikes coinciding directly with the advent of modern cars and our modern roads system. In this fascinating webinar learn about the history of biking from author of Bike Boom and Roads Were Not Built For Cars, Carlton Reid. Reid dissects how the inseparable history of bicycles and roads can be a catalyst to bringing about greater tolerance and multi-purpose use of modern roads. 

Heather Boyer, Vice President and Executive Editor at Island Press, Andy Clarke, President of the League of American Bicyclists, and Martha Roskowski, VP of Local Innovation at PeopleForBikes join Reid for a panel discussion. The conversation from all participants gives a full context of bikes from history to modern day, with active and forward-looking examples on biking policy, infrastructure, and community biking potential.
