Globe Talks: Safe or savage?


Good news everyone! I’ve been invited to participate in a panel discussion next Tuesday (7/30) on bicycle safety in Boston. The event is being put on by the Boston Globe as part of their “Globe Talks” series, and it will be moderated by star transportation reporter Martine Powers. Also, I will be wearing a suit.

My fellow panelists:
  • Nicole Freedman, Olympic cyclist and the City of Boston’s esteemed Bike Czar
  • Vineet Gupta, Boston Transportation Department’s Director of Policy and Planning
  • Richard Fries, former professional European racer, world-class race announcer and race organizer, and local commuting advocate
  • Jackie Douglas, Executive Director of LivableStreets Alliance
I’m actually a bit nervous, as I have no idea what I’m going to say. Hopefully I won’t embarrass myself up there. On the off chance that I do, and you would like to be there to observe it firsthand, you can! The event is free and open to the public, and it will also be webcast for Globe subscribers.

DATE: Tuesday, July 30

TIME: 6pm - 7:30pm

LOCATION: The Boston Globe | 135 Morrissey Blvd. | Boston, MA
