The Federal Highway Administration and the District Department of Transportation, in cooperation with the Royal Netherlands Embassy, will host the second series of ThinkBike workshops April 21-22.

The workshops will bring together Washington-area transportation planners and Dutch bicycle transportation experts and cyclists.

The Dutch are experts on how to safely integrate bikes in city infrastructure, and are proud of their modern bicycle transportation networks.

Since the first Washington, D.C. ThinkBike workshop in 2010, the District has built 50 percent more bike lanes, which has led to 60 percent more residents regularly biking to work.

Members of the media interested in covering the opening ceremony should contact Terry Owens, 202-763-8635, or Michelle Phipps-Evans, 202-497-0124 of the District Department of Transportation.
