European Bicycle Infrastructure to Hopefully Inspire Madison Leaders

Posted on Apr 9th 2010 | Advocacy, Blog, News,

Madison’s Mayor, Dave Cieslewicz, along with 19 other civic leaders are traveling through a handful of cities in the Netherlands and Germany next week to learn about the policies and infrastructure that allows an incredibly high percentage of trips to be taken by bicycle. The hope is to inspire new ideas that can be applied to Madison. Currently, 3% of commute trips in Madison are made by bicycle with hopes to increase that number to 20% by 2020. The trip has been made possible by Saris, Bikes Belong, and the Bicycle Federation of WI.
