Cycling in Waterloo Region
Why We Cycle, film screening and discussion

The Netherlands is regarded as the best country on earth for cycling. But the Dutch rarely think about their country as a cycling paradise; they just get on their bikes and go about their daily business. The film Why We Cycle explores some of the obvious and not-so-obvious effects of cycling on people, communities and cities. Join us as we screen this insightful and thorugh-provoking film that brings together cutting edge scholarly research, with ordinary lived experiences of cycling and mobility.

In the panel discussion that follows that follows the film, we will explore the lessons, insights, challenges and possibilities for cycling here in Waterloo Region. Panel discussants include:
Jennifer Dean, Assistant Professor in the School of Planning, University of Waterloo
Emily Slofstra, CycleWR
Justin Readman, General Manager, Development Services, City of Kitchener
Sarah Marsh, City Councillor, Ward 10, City of Kitchener
The panel will be moderated by Brian Doucet, Canada Research Chair in the School of Planning, University of Waterloo
More information about the film can be found here
