Jim Davis, Chair, Cycling Embassy of Great Britain – The Joy of Sects: The Evolution of the Embassy
Two years after his first appearance, Jim Davis, Founder and Chair of the Cycling Embassy of Great Britain returns to Street Talks in April to reflect on why he decided to set up a new campaign, the problems the Embassy has faced in moving amongst the cycling establishment, cycling enthusiasts and national government, and the fun they’ve had along the way.
Jim will discuss what the Embassy stands for and the challenges that they may face in the future. He will consider how they can help ensure the Mayor and his successors deliver on the Vision for Cycling in London, and whether London can act as an inspiration for investment in cycling infrastructure across the UK.
Jim Davis is a writer, campaigner, lobbyist, occasional blogger and even more occasional stand-up comedian. He founded the Cycling Embassy of Great Britain in January 2011 having campaigned locally and worked for CTC as an Information Officer.
