Vancouver’s Velo Vision: Safe Biking for All Ages

Biking, Seniors, Stories, Youth

Screen capture from StreetFilms.org film entitled, "Vancouver's Velo Vision: Safe Biking for All Ages"

We found this video on the website of StreetFilms.org and thought it worthwhile to share a simple methodology for testing if a city’s cycling infrastructure is well designed.

“When you are going to evaluate the design of any cycling infrastructure, you don’t have to be a transportation engineer. Think of a child, a child that you really love. Once you have that boy or girl in your mind, think of an older adult that you also love. Would you send them on that bicycle infrastructure?

– Gil Penalosa, Executive Director 8-80 Cities, at 1 minute 40 seconds
