You can now reserve a space for the Mia Birk lecture on January 26 at SFU Harbour Centre.

Mia Birk is author of  Joyride:Pedaling Toward a Healthier Planet

The book tells the dramatic and enlightening behind-the-scenes story of how a group of determined visionaries transformed Portland into a cycling mecca and inspired the nation. 

Through a panoply of hilarious and poignant stories, Birk takes readers on a 20-year rollercoaster journey of global and local discovery and education, while bringing into sharp focus some of the planet’s most pressing and hotly debated energy and transportation issues, policies, shortcomings, and solutions.

Mia will be speaking at an SFU City Program lecture, sponsored by Urban Systems.  It will be held January 26, 2011, at the Segal Centre (515 West Hastings Street), beginning at 7 pm.

This will be the first lecture in a series sponsored by Urban Systems Ltd.
