To celebrate his visit (and do read the report he wrote on street conditions in London under the previous Mayoral administration if you have a chance) we are hosting a different streets, cities, people and cycling TED Talk here on ibikelondon every Friday - perfect for a bit of lunch time learning!
Kicking off our season of Friday TED Talks is outgoing New York Department of Transport Commissioner Janette Sadik-Khan. During her tenure the sleepless city has seen Times Square pedestrianised, separated bike lanes be built on Broadway and the introduction of a city-wide bicycle rental system (dubbed "Mike's Bikes" after NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg).
New York's streets? Not so mean anymore...
Jan Gehl will present "The Human Scale" at Hackney Empire Theatre on January 23rd 2014 - buy your tickets online now.
