Mayor’s visit to Netherlands


About two years ago our Mayor, at least one councillor and several staff visited the Netherlands. It was my understanding that one goal of this visit was to see how cycling is treated there with a view to using some of those findings in our city. I recall the Mayor mentioning (after the visit) that John Voss (a City engineer) was using his tape measure to check out the width of bike lanes in one of the cities that they delegation visited.

I have yet to see any results from this visit, with regards to changes in the City’s cycling infrastructure. Perhaps someone with more knowledge on the topic can let us know.
