Philadelphia's future from an urban planning and public space perspective is inextricably tied to cycling. Replanning our city in support of safer, better cycling satisfies a host of urban planning goals like increasing mobility, improving public health, addressing sustainability, making our streets safer, and economically injecting more money into our local economy. We are excited to announce that a new print publication will be debuting January 30th to fast-forward Philly's cycling future.
