      Silicon Valley reps discuss the Netherlands Bicycle Transportation Study Project

      In September, SVBC was proud to select three representatives to attend
      the Netherlands Bicycle Transportation Study Project. These
      transportation and land use leaders learned a lot and would like to
      share their experiences.

      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 José 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 econom, 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 the educational
      trip to the Netherlands.
