Anders’ presentation will be a “dry run” of a presentation he will give a week later for an international gathering of experts in Montreal as part of the Winter Cycling Congress http://www.velo.qc.ca/wcc/?lang=en. Your feedback and critique will be most welcome. The presentation intends to cover the high-level framework governing a bike-friendly winter city. He will delve specifically into the work he did winter design/maintenance guidelines for Stantec and the City of Calgary’s new downtown cycle track network (which famously had its 1,000,000th trip and became permanent just recently).
Ander’s talk will cover specific maintenance best practices, policy steps and communications strategies needed to provide a well-maintained winter cycling network. Aspects of design targeted to walking and the benefits to people in wheelchairs will also be covered. and prep the attendees to provide helpful feedback while picking “routes” for Winnipeg’s “priority” network.
