      Bicycle culture and infrastructure: Lessons from the Netherlands
      December 6, 7-9pm, San Jose City Hall, Room W-120 (located in the Rotunda)

      In the US, babies first learn to roll over, crawl, and then walk. In
      the Netherlands, there's one more stage that is of utmost importance:
      learning to ride a bike.

      The Netherlands boasts a 27% bike mode share. How do they do it? And
      can San Jose and the region replicate it? Come hear from our panel and
      learn about the various land use and transportation strategies being
      employed in four different cities, Utrecht, Amsterdam, Rotterdam and
      The Hague. Hear about how each city is dealing with the same kinds of
      transportation and land use challenges as the Bay Area and how the
      Dutch continue to retain and grow their bike culture, protect open
      space, grow the economy and preserve a high quality of life.

      Join the Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition for a panel of local experts
      on transportation and land use planning.

      Panel Speakers:
      Sam Liccardo, San Jose Downtown Council Member
      Manuel Pineda, Acting Deputy Director of SJ Department of Transportation
      Shiloh Ballard, Vice President, Housing & Community Development at
      Silicon Valley Leadership Group

      Special thanks goes to Bikes Belong who facilitated an educational
      trip to the Netherlands.
