My name is Dr. Eric France and I am the Chief of Population & Prevention Services for Kaiser Permanente in Denver, Colorado. I leave tomorrow, June 17, 2010 to spend two months in Portland, Oregon where I will learn what this city has done to make it easy to ride your bike. I will be meeting with many of the leaders in bike transportation while there and will blog on my learnings. My goal for this sabbatical is to identify the key steps a community can take to increase bike ridership. I hope to come back to Denver with a clearer picture of what local bike enthusiasts should be working on in order to have a meaningful impact on ridership. (read more...)
I encourage you all to follow along. Eric is a passionate cyclist and bicycle advocate.
I want to take a two month sabbatical to study bike stuff!!!!
