In a short time, the coronavirus crisis has forced communities worldwide to reevaluate their mobility networks, especially as public transportation faces reduced capacity for the foreseeable future.  

Enter the bicycle, which—in combination with an electric pedal assist—is filling a portion of the gap.  

The Maryland Department of Planning and the Smart Growth Network held this webinar on July 16, 2020. Melissa Bruntlett and Chris Bruntlett, authors of Building the Cycling City: The Dutch Blueprint for Urban Vitalitydiscussed how cities across the globe are adapting their streets to this new reality and are working to ensure this ‘bike boom’ sticks long-term.
