NLA – Notes from a Large Country – A progress update from Peter Murray on the Portland to Portland bike ride

See on Scoop.itLondon Life

        This event is free to attend but registration is essential.

             When Bill Bryson left England to go back to America he wrote a book called ‘Notes from a Small Island’. Peter Murray is briefly back in London at the halfway stage of the Portland Oregon to Portland Place bike ride across the States and will talk about some of the key elements he and his team of a dozen architects and planners have discovered that differentiate our two countries in terms of urban planning, environmental design and cycling culture – from squandered space, the tyranny of the grid, main streets and high streets and the politeness of drivers.
A pay bar will be available.
