Dutch Bicycle Experts Come to Miami

The aim is to make Miami more bicycle friendly. According to the Miami Herald:

...their arrival signals that Miami is getting more serious about making room for cyclists.

The Royal Netherlands embassy in Washington has dispatched three of the famously bike-friendly country’s top experts on “cycling as transportation’’ to Miami, where they will spend three days figuring out how to turn the city’s car-clogged downtown into a virtual Amsterdam of safe, connected bikeways. Or as close to that as we can get.

Biking workshop:
