What does AARP have to do with complete streets, walkability, and vibrant neighborhoods? A lot, turns out. Join us as Kay Sibetta and Myrtle Habersham from AARP talk about why creating safe, walkable and bikeable communities is critically important for seniors -- and for everyone else, too.
In this episode, we hear from John Bennett, Safety Education Programs Manager for Georgia Bikes. John has been in bike and pedestrian advocacy for years, and talks about how he got into working on cycling and walking initiatives in the state, the promise of e-bikes, the reason we cycle, and misconceptions around cycling we still need to overcome.
