The Dutch Cycling Embassy is committed to sharing their knowledge in policy and solutions to facilitate cycling worldwide. In September 2022, they visited Reno and worked with local leaders and professionals and have submitted a detailed report on cycling and micromobility in our area. TMBA is proud to be able to make this report available to the public.
The Dutch Cycling Embassy will be in Reno, Nevada at the McKinley Arts & Culture Center September 12-14 for a three-day ThinkBike workshop designed for professionals followed by nightly free workshops which are open to the public.
ThinkBike Public Workshops: The ThinkBike public workshops will be held on September 12th from 6-8 at Patagonia Downtown Reno and on September 14th from 6-8 at McKinley Arts Center. These instructional and fun workshops are free and for anyone interested in learning about urban mobility, road safety, emission reductions, the economics of cycling, social inclusion, and health.The Netherlands has the highest bicycle use in the world, and the Dutch Cycling Embassy is committed to sharing their knowledge in policy and solutions to facilitate cycling worldwide. Space is limited. Out of courtesy to others, please only request tickets for yourself and individuals you will be attending with.
The experts who we have planned to take part in the workshop are Jasper Homrighausen from the company Royal HaskoningDHV, and Dick van Veen from MOVE Mobility.
Micromobility is quickly changing the way we travel, boosting the economy, solving parking and traffic problems, and requiring quick and challenging adaptation for planners, drivers and riders. To ease this transition, the Truckee Meadows Bicycle Alliance and University of Nevada Reno have invited national and international micromobility experts to Reno for exclusive workshops and conferences. Bringing the Dutch Cycling Embassy requires a significant investment of over $16,000. Seed money of $6,500 has been provided by generous donors. Ticket sales will also cover some expenses. We are reaching out to hundreds of people who support making a micromodal mecca in the Truckee Meadows. When you make a tax-deductible donation, include your address, email, and phone number and we will send you a gift, a personal thank you note with a receipt for your donation. Thank you!
