If we're running a bit late at Velo-city Global 2012, blame Gil Penalosa, the uber-enthusiastic urban planning consultant and cycling advocate from Toronto who turned two back-to-back presentations this morning into one inspiring injection of pro-cycling joy juice.
Lots from him:
The move among American cities to consider slower speed limits in residential areas (to 20 mpm -- roughly 32 km/h);
About Toronto: They are trying to do things right but aren't doing the right things;
"Each cyclist killed in a street with no protective bicycle lane is the government's fault."
He got the only standing "O" so far.
