Val and Faith are joined in the studio this week by Melissa and Chris Buntlett of Canadian agency Modacity. We share our bike moments before taking a brief look at some local news including; last chance to have your say on the shape of the Shrine to Sea boulevard for pedestrians and cyclists and Skyrail for Upfield and the chance to make sure this ensures a badly needed upgrade for the Upfield bike path

Melissa and Chris describe how they first came to give up the use of their car ten years ago in Vancouver and the journey they've been on since then, with their two children, sharing stories about urban mobility and the ways in which multi-modal transport which embraces the bicycle can create more open and welcoming environments for everyone. Their book Building the Cycling City: The Dutch Blueprint for Urban Vitality is being launched in Melbourne Tuesday November 20th at Bicycle Network
