Will Victoria Be the Next Copenhagen?
Join us for coffee with Copenhagen’s Cycling Expert Andreas Røhl
As Victoria continues to seek feedback on a proposed bike network with the community, we are also learning from one of the world’s most bike-friendly cities, Copenhagen, Denmark.
Join us Friday, March 4, 2016 for coffee with Andreas Røhl, cycling specialist with Gehl Architects & Studio, and former Bicycle Program Manager for the City of Copenhagen. Røhl will speak about his experience implementing a world-class cycling network.
Mr. Røhl is part of the international team of cycling experts involved in reviewing Victoria’s current cycling infrastructure, and proposing priority All Ages and Abilities routes for the future.
Victoria’s community plan strives to see 70% of residents walking or biking by 2041, and in 2015 City Council developed a bold vision to become one of the best small cities in the world for cycling. Informed by extensive public input, the City’s strategic plan sets the goal that Victoria will be “a national leader in cycling infrastructure by building an All Ages and Abilities cycling network by 2018.” The first corridor will be constructed on Pandora Avenue this spring.
Friday, March 4 Victoria Conference Centre 10 a.m. – noon.
