Join the opening event of ThinkBike 2015, a four-day celebration and study of how biking can make Miami more livable and sustainable.Â Led by an experienced team of Dutch urban planning and mobility experts, ThinkBike 2015 focuses on The Underline, the transformative 10-mile linear park and urban trail below Metrorail from the Miami River to Dadeland South, and how it can enhance connectivity, mobility, and biking safety for hundreds of thousands of residents and visitors.
Brought to you by the Consulate General of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, in cooperation with Miami-Dade County, Miami-Dade Metropolitan Planning Organization, Friends of the Underline, the Dutch Cycling Embassy, Bike305 and The Parks Foundation of Miami-Dade, ThinkBike 2015 features several presentations and workshops at HistoryMiami and the Downtown Miami-Dade County Public Library.
The opening session on Monday, January 12th, kicks-off with a public presentation of Dutch best practices for bike infrastructure, planning, and implementation. Experts will share how the Netherlands was transformed into the worldâ€™s most bike-friendly country, where the bike is used as an alternative to driving a car. The kickoff concludes with a virtual bike ride along the M-Path, the existing bike path below Metrorail.
