Making Toronto Safe for Cyclists: Bikes vs. Cars - Screening & Panel
Join Globe and Mail staff writer Alex Bozikovic and special guests for this timely screening of the 2015 documentary Bikes vs. Cars, an urgent portrait of the bicycle as a tool for urban change. Travelling from São Paulo, Los Angeles and Toronto, where cyclists fight daily for their right to the road, to Copenhagen, where forty percent of the population commutes by bike, director Fredrik Gertten meets activists and thinkers who are working for revolutionary changes and more sustainable urban enviornments. Beautifully crafted and inspiring, Bikes vs Cars is a powerful look at how to move away from car-centric models and toward livable cities.
Stick around after the screening as Alex sits down with a panel of the city's leading urbanism thinkers to discuss what it will take to make Toronto a safer city for cyclists.
