“Around the Corner” is a PhillyCAM show that offers local social impact leaders the opportunity to share what impact their work is having on the Philadelphia area.
“The average bicyclist really looks like the average Philadelphian.”
That, according to Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia’s communications manager, Randy LoBasso, means that the people you see whipping down the Pine Street bike lane in the morning span neighborhoods of origin, ethnicities and incomes. Collectively, they account for the 2.2 percent of Philadelphians who bike to work or school — the most of any major American city.
Watch LoBasso’s “Around the Corner” interview to learn about how and why BCGP plans to make that happen.
PhillyCAM is Comcast channel 66/966 HD/967 and Verizon FIOS channel 29/30 in Philadelphia.-30-
