Velo-city 2017 was full of all sorts of fun, excitement, information and enlightenment! Speeches, vendors, multi-media and bike parades are all part of the experience. But seeing infrastructure in the great alfresco live with guided experts is the core experience of going to any transportation conference.
On the final day of Velo-city 2017, I joined a group of attendees who were guided around Nijmegen and its outskirts by three Dutch infrastructure experts. We got to hear about the amazing cycle streets where cars are guests, the science of way some intersections are better designed to give bikes priority vs cars and even visited a school where over 60% of the children (most nice days) arrive by bicycle.
It's very hard to make an excellent wrap-up video on a infrastructure tour without a full crew and days/weeks in advance pre-planning. But I centered in on what I thought were the highlights and I think this Streetfilm will provide lots of quality moments to help viewers see just how seriously the Dutch treat design and safety for people using a bicycle.
