We are excited to announce our featured speakers for the 2015 Tennessee Bike Summit.
Gil is Founder and Chair of the Board of 8-80 Cities. Gil also runs his own international consulting firm – Gil Penalosa & Associates. Gil advises decision makers and communities on how to create vibrant cities and healthy communities for all: from 8 to 80 years old. Gil Penalosa is passionate about creating great cities for all people, regardless of social, economic or ethnic background, and the design and use of parks and streets as great public places, as well as sustainable mobility. As former Commissioner of Parks, Sport and Recreation for the City of Bogotá, Colombia, Gil successfully led the design and development of over 200 parks and initiated the “new Ciclovia”— a program which sees over 1 million people walk, run, skate and bike along 121 kilometers of Bogotá’s city roads every Sunday. Because of his unique blend of pragmatism and passion, Gil’s leadership and advice is sought out by many cities and organizations.
After joining PeopleForBikes in January 2012, Ms. Roskowski orchestrated the launch of the highly successful Green Lane Project that is spurring the development of protected bikeways in U.S. cities and towns, coast to coast, including our very own Memphis, Tennessee! This infrastructure concept has been widely embraced as a cost-effective way to improve road safety for all users while making bicycling more appealing to a broader audience. Roskowski’s long and successful career as a bicycling leader includes seven years as the founding executive director of Bicycle Colorado, three years in Washington, DC, as campaign director for America Bikes, and seven years as Director of GO Boulder—the city’s highly regarded transportation program that focuses on transit, bicycling and walking.
Richard Edwards the program manager for IMBA Trail Solutions.
