SPUR Lunchtime Forum: Going Dutch: Creating a bicycle-dependent city

1:37 AM PST on January 10, 2011

From SPUR:

Join San Francisco Bicycle Coalition Executive Director Leah Shahum as she shares lessons learned from her eight-month sabbatical in Amsterdam. What can we learn here in San Francisco from the success in bicycling and livability of Amsterdam, Copenhagen and Paris? What are the crucial lessons from Europe as we prepare to pilot bikeshare here in San Francisco? How can we build the bike parking capacity we need to accommodate our rapidly growing ridership, and what ideas can we borrow from Amsterdam? Leah will share her insights and observations on how Amsterdam became a bicycling mecca, the challenges they faced along the way, and how we can learn from success abroad to grow the infrastructure needed to make San Francisco a truly world-class bicycling city.
