Public Dialogue: “Serious Cash for Cycling” May 2nd 2013

The British Columbia Cycling Coalition (BCCC) is hosting a panel discussion about the future of funding for cycling in BC. This election, cycling organizations are endorsing a Provincial Cycling Strategy which includes the recommendation that the province invest $75 million a year to improve cycling facilities and provide education for people of all ages and abilities. Isn’t it time to make this kind of serious investment in cycling?

  • Richard Campbell, President of the British Columbia Cycling Coalition
  • Erin O’Melinn, Executive Director of HUB:Your Cycling Connection
  • John Richards, School of Public Policy, SFU, Harbour Centre

What: Free Public Dialogue about the Future of Cycling Funding in BC
