Chicago Humanities Festival panel on bicycling
On November 6, the Chicago Humanities Festival, in partnership with CMAP, will present a panel discussion on the cultural and political history of bicycling. The discussion will consider the recent history of urban bicycling, and examine how it competes with, complements, and contrasts with other uses of our public spaces and infrastructure investment. The panel will be moderated by John O’Neal, a planner at CMAP, and will include participants Harry Wray, professor at DePaul and author of Pedal Power: The Quiet Rise of the Bicycle in American Public Life; Randy Neufeld of SRAM Corporation and board chair of Active Transportation Alliance; Julie Hochstadter, co-founder of TheChainlink.org; and Greg Borzo, author of Where to Bike: Chicago.
The event will take place this Saturday, November 6, from 1:00 to 2:30 p.m. at the First United Methodist Church at the Chicago Temple, 77 W. Washington St., Chicago. Tickets are $5.00 (teachers and students free) and can be purchased online or on the day of the event at the door.
