Presentation on European "Gold Standard" for Bikes
This Wednesday afternoon the City is hosting a presentation about bicycling in Northern Europe. Jane Shey, a PhD student in Leuven, Belgium, has reviewed several studies that identify key municipal policies, which indicate how several cities including Copenhagen, Amsterdam, and Groningen, have become the "Gold Standard" in cycling. The presentation includes pictures to show how bike accommodations are structured, including bicycle lanes, paths, and cycle tracks, as well as bike parking facilities at transit stations. It will also include information about the policy changes that were instituted, problems of cyclists (including bicycle theft), attitudes about safety, and funding schemes to improve cycling.
Jane is pursuing her PhD in environmental policy in Leuven, Belgium at Katholieke Universiteit Leuven. She is a native of the Midwest, and has worked as the Staff Director of former Minnesota Congressman Tim Penny.
Everyone is welcome.
When: Wednesday, January 14th at 4:30 pm
Where: Minneapolis City Hall (350 S 5th Street) Room 319.
