- Four hundred years after Henry Hudson s arrival inMessage 1 of 1 , Aug 19, 2009View Source
Four hundred years after Henry Hudson's arrival in Manhattan, two teams of Dutch and American planners designers face off in a battle for the future of New York City transportation. Their challenge: find ways to bring NYC cycling up to the level of the Netherlands, the only country in the world with more bikes than people.
New Amsterdam Bike Slam is being organized in New Amsterdam (sometime also referred to as "New York City") from 10-13 September 2009. It is an initiative of Amsterdam Cycling to Sustainability, produced by Vélo Mondial and Transportation Alternatives, with funding from Transumo and the City of Amsterdam.
