Considering that the gods of finance have yet to gift me with enough cash to buy a bike, I can’t say I have too much of a vested interest in the future of the urban bicycle. And yet I care. I really do.
Tonight at 7PM, the Museum of Arts and Design is hosting “The Future of Bikes: Bikes as Urban Transport” the latest iteration in a series of events dedicated to tackling that decidedly dicey issue. Moderated by Loren Mooney, the editor-in-chief of Bicycling Magazine, the talk will be attended by such notables as Hayes Lord, (also known as the “bikes guy” at the NYC Department of Transportation), Brent Norsman (an architect and bike shop-owner out of Chicago ), and many more.
Best part? The event is being held right in the middle of MAD’s Pay-What-You Wish hours, meaning that broke-asses get in for FREE.
