November 27, 2013 – Segment 3
We close out the show with a special archive edition, as we look back at an article published in Urbanite magazine, claiming that promoting bike-friendliness in cities can effect social change. The article cited that the murder rate in Bogota, Colombia, dropped 76 percent after that city became bike-conscious. Our panel discusses what a pro-bike culture could do for Baltimore and how our city could implement a similar plan to that of Bogota. Our guests are:
- Nate Evans, Bicycle & Pedestrian Planner for the Baltimore City Department of Transportation;
- Marla Streb, Baltimore native and professional mountain biker;
- and Pierre Stewart, Senior Business Development Manager at Baltimore City.
