Building the cycling city

By the Editor, Kitchissippi Times, September 6, 2018

On Wednesday August 29, on the very outskirts of Kitchissippi at Vimy Brewing, a couple of Vancouverites were in town signing copies of a new book. The book, Building the Cycling City, is a result of Chris and Melissa Bruntlett’s long experience with cycling activism, running the cycling blog, as well as a recent journey to The Netherlands to learn what that region of the world got right when it comes to cycling.

“It’s not just about cycling,” says Melissa. “The whole way they’re designing cities is putting people first.”

The tone struck by Building the Cycling City is one of optimism. According to Chris and Melissa, there’s no reason we can’t do it here, and reap the same benefits.
