New Kickstand Sessions

The Kickstand Sessions are an exciting and comprehensive master classes that were launched in North America in Spring 2012. The aim is to bring together groups with world class expertise in the areas of bicycle planning, policy, and culture. They create locally relevant solutions and actionable steps for building bicycle cultures and increasing sustainable urban mobility. Cities with established bicycle cultures enjoy increased traffic efficiencies, infrastructure savings and more liveable communities. Years of research in using bicycles as transportation has shown the importance of sound planning and policy methods but also the value of effectively communicate those ideas. Now, more than ever, bicycles are at the forefront of planning and we are keen to ensure this practical, simple, and economical mode of transport is here to stay. Participants of Kickstand leave with a stronger understanding of best practice bicycle-related implementations, how to market them, and an opportunity for a continued partnership with both Dutch and Danish experts. Velo Mondial highly recommends these master classes to those who prefer hands on working together with Dutch and Danish experts  rather than listening to lectures. Next sessions.
