Introducing Our Seminar Series At The Philly Bike Expo

The Philly Bike Expo is coming up on October 29th-30th at the 23rd Street Armory in Philadelphia. As part of the Expo, we are putting on a series of twelve 1-hour seminars on a wide range of bicycling topics. All our seminars will happen in Griffin Hall in the First Unitarian Church (2125 Chestnut Street). These seminars are free with admission to the Expo.

Seminar Preview: 

Winning Arguments*
Saturday, October 29th
2:00 - 3:00 pm
Hosted by Alex Doty (Executive Director of the Bicycle Coalition)

Ride long enough, and you'll encounter the same arguments. "Why waste road space on such a small percentage of road users?" "Bikes and bicyclists should be required to have registrations and licenses - it's only fair." "Get out of the road, saddle jockey!" Learn some rhetorical strategies and handy statistics that will help you navigate these classic arguments without resorting to U-lock violence or divisive, high-handed moralizing.

More information on our seminar series is available on our website here.

*Note: this seminar is listed in places as "Winning Arguments with Alex Doty." That is a different seminar, one which happens year-round, is free of charge, and difficult to master.
