The Royal Netherlands Embassy, in cooperation with the District Department of Transportation (DDOT) and the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments (MWCOG), will host a 2-day event - the ThinkBike Workshops - on Monday, November 15 and Tuesday, November 16, 2010. The ThinkBike workshops will bring together Dutch bicycle transportation experts, local transportation planners, engineers and cyclists to plan and discuss how Washington, DC can become more bike-friendly. The workshops will address bike safety, commuting by bike, biking to school, bike parking, bikes and public transport and law enforcement. Successful ThinkBike workshops were recently held in Toronto and Chicago. Opening and closing sessions are open to the general public. There is no cost, but advance registration is required. Click here to register for the opening session on Monday, November 15 and here for the closing session and reception on Tuesday, November 16, or contact Megan Kanagy firstname.lastname@example.org, Transportation Planner at DDOT, at 202-671-5111.
