Building a Bike-Friendly Community

Active Transportation Symposium in Ithaca November 18-20

Posted by Steve Reiter on November 11, 2010

Mia Birk is coming to Ithaca for the Active Transportation Symposium on November 18-20.

Mia is CEO of Alta Planning + Design, co-founder of the Institute for Bike and Pedestrian Foundation, adviser to the Post Carbon Institute, author of Joyride: Pedaling Toward a Healthier Planet, and former Bike Program Manager of Portland, Oregon.

Mia has been a lifelong advocate for bicycle infrastructure, and has pushed forward many of the most dramatic streetscape changes in the nation.  Alta Planning + Design has partnered with Syracuse, NY to plan and inform bicycle developments, and her mission of transforming roads to accommodate daily cycling for transportation, fitness, sustainability, and recreation is directly in line with BikeCNY’s mission.

I hope you can find your way down to Ithaca for all or part of this symposium.
