Your NDEW founders are taking a different turn this year, given the soaring popularity of electric bikes, cargo bikes & scooters, & the proliferation of carsharing & subscription services. We'll also celebrate other forms of climate-friendly transportation: mass transit, including zero-emission busses, rail, even freight. Autonomous vehicles, too! NOTE: Our Zoom workshop will run live on Sat., Sept. 25. Thereafter, you'll find the recording on this page.

 Expect lively, frank discussion, Q&A and plenty of homemade videos!

Part I: E-biking 101. A panel with some of the country's leading spokespeople, each an avid cyclist and cycling advocate, to help get you moving on two wheels. Partial list:

  • Arleigh Greenwald, best known as the Bike Shop Girl, is a product marketing manager with Tern Bicycles, a leader in bicycle design, manufacture and sales. Arleigh has helped many get started cycling and advocates for the e-cargo bike's ability to replace car journeys where feasible.
  • Stacey Randecker Bartlett is working to accelerate bicycle adoption of renewably powered electric, autonomous vehicles, and micro-mobility to help reduce death from car crashes and auto-related pollution.
Part II: Are Cars Overrated? Should personal vehicles, even if zero-emission, continue to dominate our cities and roads? How do we equitably include micro-mobility, mass transit and diverse and disadvantaged communities in the transportation transformation now before us? Where do autonomous vehicles fit into this picture? Our second panel of experts will take a hard look at all of it. Partial speaker list:

  •  Andrea Learned is an author and climate-influence advisor, corporate sustainability strategist, podcast co-host (Bike Talk) and curator of the #Bikes4Climate conversations on Twitter and LinkedIn. Her take on accelerating e-bike adoption has made her one of our most persuasive voices on the issue.
  • Jason Henderson is San Francisco State University professor of geography & environment. His research focuses on the politics of mobility and examines how culture, history, politics and economics shape transportation. His work is motivated by the need for rapid and accelerated decarbonization to limit global warming and inspired by efforts to build compact, car-free and cycling cities globally. He wrote "Street Fight: The Politics of Mobility in San Francisco."
  • Carlos Morales is founder of the Eastside Bike Club and its popular annual Tour De Taco ride across East Los Angeles and the San Gabriel Valley. He is the owner of Stan's Bike Shop in Azusa and appears in the documentary, "MAMIL (Middle Aged Men in Lycra)." He's an expert on bicycling and e-bikes within the local and national LatinX community, from the asphalt up.
  • Praveen Kathpal is president of Motor, a company working with individuals, businesses and utilities to accelerate the adoption of electric cars through a personal electric car subscription service and car-sharing fleet in Indianapolis and an online EV buying tool.
  • Nathaniel Horadam is a managing consultant and automated vehicle specialist with the Atlanta-based nonprofit Center for Transportation and the Environment, where he supports projects involving automated vehicle and battery electric bus technologies.
