Spokes Tuesday Transport Seminar #1

A series of four presentations to challenge and inform you about how we get around our cities.    🚴 🚦 🚴

A different topic will be covered each Tuesday evening during Biketober.  This week’s speakers will be Dr Alexa Kidd and her daughter Frances (see details below).

Gather to catch-up from 5pm with nibbles and a drink (cash bar) with the seminar starting at 5:30.

Organised by Spokes Canterbury and Biketober.

Seminar details

A then-vs-now look at a mother and daughter’s experiences of solo cycle touring through Europe forty years apart and how touring in New Zealand has not made the same advances.  They explore why cycle touring has become an extreme sport in Aotearoa and what needs to change to allow all cyclists (push bikers, e-bikers or otherwise) to once again explore our beautiful country in the most magical way.

Dr Alexa Kidd is a clinical geneticist and medical officer in psychiatry in Christchurch, with a lifelong passion for active transport and a bad habit of striking up conversation at traffic lights.  Frances is following carefully in her mother’s tyre tracks as a medical student with a beloved touring bike, no driver’s license and a strong conviction that any hairstyle can be maintained beneath a helmet with enough hairspray.
