The Dutch take on Chicago’s Streets: Free events Sept. 26 & 27

/Don’t miss two free events on Sept. 26 & 27 that will bring Dutch cycling to Chicago!

A delegation of Dutch transportation experts is coming to town, bringing lessons learned from the most bike-friendly nation in the world to help develop innovative design concepts for better Chicago bikeways.

It’s part of a two-day workshop and idea exchange with Chicago officials and stakeholders called ThinkBike. The ThinkBike workshop will begin with a public kick-off presentation showcasing cycling in the Netherlands and Chicago, and will end with a report-out presentation sharing design solutions for two Chicago streets developed in the workshop.

The presentations are free and open to the public, but space is limited and registration is required. Learn more and register. 

The ThinkBike workshop is sponsored by the Royal Netherlands Embassy in cooperation with the Dutch Cycling Embassy, and with support from the Chicago Department of Transportation and the Active Transportation Alliance.
