I’m Doug Gordon. I live in Brooklyn with my wife, daughter, and son. When I’m not opining here, I write and produce television shows for PBS, ABC, History, Discovery, National Geographic Channel, Travel Channel and more, generally covering the intersection of science, history, and popular culture. Like all Park Slope residents, I’m also the author of a book.
I’ve been quoted frequently in the media on New York City’s evolution as a bicycling city, and have a special interest in how the mainstream news covers issues related to bikes. As a seasoned TV professional who knows how to tell a good story, I have developed strategies for advocates to make the case for bikes as part of the transportation fabric of any smart city. The Green Lane Project from People for Bikes called me “a master of images that subvert anti-bike stereotypes.”
I have presented at various conferences and seminars including the National Bike Summit and CityWorks (X)Po, and the Association of Pedestrian and Bicycle Professionals. I am available to speak to your business or organization on the subject of bikes, the livable cities revolution, and how to deal with bikelash. Email me at douggordon //at// gmail [dot] com.
Also, I ride a different bike now.
