Movement: how to take back our streets and transform our lives

We all know what a hot topic Bristol’s cycling infrastructure is, so we thought it was time to call in the experts! At Storysmith, Bristol

Thalia Verkade and Marco te Brömmelstroet will be joining us in the shop for a special Sunday afternoon event to discuss their book Movement, which is the result of a three-year journey into the possibilities of our streets.

Thalia and Marco are experts on the success of Dutch cycling infrastructure, as well as its limitations, and what other countries are doing and could do to diversify how they use their streets and make them safer. Most importantly, they can map a way forward, offering tools for us to campaign for something different.

This event will be chaired by Martin Booth, editor of Bristol24/7
