Victoria has a new Bicycle Mayor and she’s already setting some big goals. What does it mean and can other cities like Vancouver learn from this initiative? Susan Stokhof, @LeVelo_Victoria, @BYCS_org and @WeAreHub weigh in on the subject.
It's official, Victoria BC has its first Bicycle Mayor!
This past January Susan Stokhof joined the global bicycle mayor network as the first Bicycle Mayor of Victoria and the first in Canada. What started out with one Bicycle Mayor in Amsterdam has grown into a global movement. BYCS initiates and coordinates the program and works with local partners to set up Bicycle Mayors in cities around the world. Together, they are using the bicycle to address pollution crises, tackle road deaths, break down social barriers and enable people to access essential services for the first time.
