Experiencing firsthand how a bicycle city works can be a valuable lesson for anyone concerned with traffic, bicycling, urban design, sustainability, etc.
Fietsersbond Amsterdam (the Cyclists’ Union in Amsterdam) organizes excursions about bicycling. The excursions offer a range of information about what it takes to turn a city into a bicycle friendly environment and allow you to profit from Fietsersbond’s extensive expertise in design and policy for bicycling.
Along the way you will find out about:
Bicycle facilities: what they do and how they came to be
Traffic policy: past, present and future
Finding space and money for bicycle facilities
Trouble spots that have no easy solutions
Road safety, city planning, traffic design
The excursions are aimed at professionals and students in the fields of urban transport, city planning, sustainability, public health, etc.
Professional bicycle planners with wide experience in Amsterdam will show you around and explain.
