Bike Tour Details:
Transportation planning is always evolving. The proliferation of personal electric mobility and the shift in designing to accommodate cyclists of all ages and abilities has had a profound impact on our City’s mobility system. London had an excellent foundation to build upon, the City’s beloved pathway system (the Thames Valley Parkway), and has continued to expand its protected cycling network starting in the core.

This tour will take participants on a journey to experience many of our cycling-focused projects over the past 5 years. We’ll ride on multi-use pathways, protected bike lanes, cycle tracks, bike boulevards and a flex street. We’ll get to see a variety of intersection treatments to improve vulnerable user’s safety, including dedicated cycling phases, leading pedestrian intervals, and signals exclusively for people walking and cycling. Our best example of complete streets will be on display including many streetscape, transit and cycling amenities and improvements.

Tour Lead:

Daniel Hall is a transportation engineer focused on implementing cycling and walking infrastructure improvements in the City of London. With a background in transit planning and cycling advocacy, and as a committed cyclist, he brings many perspectives to his design and planning efforts. He’s currently working on obtaining his professional planning designation to be able to use the term ‘plangineer’.

A long-time resident of London, Daniel and his wife Jess have two young children aged 6 and 8. As a goal, Daniel aspires to create a transportation network for London that allows for comfortable and convenient travel by all abilities and by all modes of travel and helps to develop a city where he doesn’t have to drive his kids to their friend’s houses.
