Pedal Brisbane are hosting a Radio National Big Ideas live recording at the Queensland Museum.

Shifting Gears. Does Cycling in Australia have a Future?

Join us for a conversation about bikes. Hear predictions about cycling culture in Australia as the panel discusses their divergent views on bike riding. It will be a night of inspiration, agitation and entertainment followed by audience Q&A.

We welcome the following panellists:

  • Michael Roth - RACQ Executive Manager - brings international insight to the discussion having recently participated in the Dutch Cycling Embassy's study tour of the Netherlands where he met with city planners, politicians and cycling experts to learn about the country's famed two-wheeled culture. 
  • Jai Christiansen created the facebook page 'Drivers for Registration of Bicycles' following the implementation of Queensland's most recent cycling laws as he feel motorists are losing their right to be heard in the heated car vs. bike debate.
  • Phil HeywoodAdjunct Associate Professor of Urban Planning at QUT - is a committed cyclist as he believes it is the most enjoyable, efficient and socially-responsible way of transporting oneself. He is concerned that the escalating divergence between sports and transport cyclists and motorists is detrimental to the normalisation and celebration of cycling.
  • Edward Hore - President and founder of cycling advocacy organisation Cycle seeks to gather together the disparate voices of the cycling communities each vying for political attention across Australia. He works at the social media coal face to engage directly with individuals, business and governing bodies.

Invited audience guests include Councillor for the Gabba Ward, Helen Abrahams, Director of Cycling at TMR Adam Rogers and author of Cycle Space Steven Fleming

Bar from 5.30pm
