Event Details

Activists and thinkers fight for better cities, and refuse to stop riding bicycles despite the increasing number of riders killed in traffic. But will dominant economic interests allow bikes to change our way of life?

From bike activists in Sao Paulo and Los Angeles fighting for safe bike lanes, to Copenhagen, where forty percent commute by bike daily, Bikes vs Cars looks at both the struggle for cyclists in a society dominated by cars, and the revolutionary changes that could take place if more cities moved away from car-centric models.
