Hans Moor, president of Ottawa's well respected bike advocacy group Citizens for Safe Cycling, will be in Calgary on Thursday, September 5 to give an update on cycling in the nation's capital from an advocacy perspective. The capital is now third nation-wide in commuter bike modal share and is making great strides in building a connected bike network. Hans will discuss Citizens for Safe Cycling's positive and constructive approach to advocacy, the bridges they have built between city planners, urban planners, consultants, alder(wo)men, the mayor, the NCC and provincial and federal parliamentarians. He'll share some amazing numbers, discuss Ottawa's plans for the next 3-4 years and the need for volunteers to work together in a variety of advocacy groups. He will discuss the role of social media, workshops, press and timing of events.
With examples from his cycling experience in his childhood and student years in Holland to his current role as a cycling advocate in Ottawa, and having spoken in many places in Canada before, Hans stitches a wonderful story together that is inspirational, educational, passionate and funny.
Hans will be speaking at the Elbow Valley Cycle Club’s (EVCC) social event that will be held on September 5th in the Parkdale Community Center.
