Actually, they’re already here. At least for a couple days.
Attended the opening session of the Think Bike Workshop. A collaboration of the Dutch Cycling Embassy and several organizations in the U.S. This public session was mostly welcomes and opening remarks, with a presentation on Dutch bicycle design and planning. For the next two days, the attendees will discuss bicycle planning for some specific issues in Austin. The first is cycletracks in the downtown area; the second is the south Lamar corridor. The workshop will make presentations on Friday night at the city hall. Can’t wait see what the experts have to say about Austin (other than it’s not flat).
This morning’s trip: bike to Metrorail – Metrorail to downtown – bike to city hall – listen and take notes – bike to nearest Car2Go – drive to Domain – bike home.
And I got some great coffee and a cinnamon roll while I waited for the meeting to start.
