Made-in-Alberta – Specials – Bike Month Wrap-up

Length: (4 min)

MIA (Ch. 11) Seasonal Special (Ep. 9) Bike Month (2010) Wrap-up
Over time, Edmonton will evolve from a largely car-dependent society to one that moves along using a diversity of transportation modes. What effect will this mode-shift have on our popular culture? This week on Made-in-Alberta, Barb wraps up Bikeology festival with bike education, bike art, and glimpses into Edmonton’s small but influential, bike-culture community.

About Chapter 11 “Seasonal Specials”
Going green isn’t about changing your life beyond recognition. It’s about finding lower-impact ways of enjoying our lifestyles and seasonal celebrations. Made-in-Alberta investigates how Albertans are making every day Earth Day.

About “Bikeology TV”

About Made-in-Alberta (MIA) Series
Energy, water and climate, these are hot topics for the 21st Century. With conventional fuel reserves running out, water tables running low, and global temperatures running high, 96 percent of Albertans now want new energy solutions. Since 2004, Barb Allard and her Made-in-Alberta team have been finding these solutions and bringing them to community television and the world-wide-web.
