Biking is just so incredibly powerful—from a utilitarian perspective as well as from a health perspective, as well as it’s just so much gosh darn fun.
— John Simmerman

As part of Bike Week at Strong Towns, we interviewed a long time member and friend, John Simmerman. He's the founder of Active Towns and travels around the world sharing his love of active living and promoting bikeability and walkability. John shares the many ways that towns can create a "culture of activity" in their communities—one that is welcoming and safe for people of all ages.
