Calgary tour de nuit Society Presents: Hans Moor

Hans Moor, Economic and Commercial Affairs Officer, Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands will be delivering a presentation ‘Bulbs and Pedals: How Calgary Can Learn from the Netherlands’. The talk will discuss the economic effects of cycling on society as a whole as well as factors that have proven successful at increasing the popularity of commuter cycling with references to cycling in the Netherlands and Ottawa.

Hans is a commuter cyclist and is the president of the Ottawa active and sustainable transportation organization Citizens for Safe Cycling. This year Ottawa opened dedicated bicycle lanes on Laurier Avenue similar to the ‘Road Diet’ proposed on 5th and 6th Ave SW.
