This is cool, folks. Next American City is hosting a fascinating panel discussion tomorrow night on the state of bicycling in Philadelphia. Our own Alex Doty is one of several smart and articulate city decision-makers making up the panel. Tickets are free and can be procured online.

Date: Thursday, May 31st
Time: 6:30 - 8:00 pm
Cost: Free
Location: The Storefront for Urban Innovation at 28th & Girard.

Here is a description of the panel:
Cities across America are installing new bike lanes, initiating bike share programs and developing complete streets policies to make streets safer for cyclists as well as other non-drivers. What does this attention to bicycling mean for cyclists, motorist and pedestrians? A panel of city officials, community members, advocates and researchers will lend their interpretation of the impact of cycling in Philadelphia. Panelists include Andrew Stober from the Mayor's Office of Transportation and Utilities; Alex Doty from the Bicycle Coalition; John Chin from the Chinatown Development Corporation and advocates from Penn Design and University of the Arts' Masters in Industrial Design program.
