Todd Boulanger is a Senior Transportation Planner with the City of Vancouver (WA). But that's just his day job. He's known in the bike scene as a cross-cultural bike-fun ambassador and an Alice Award winner (2005), who also happens to be an expert on bicycle and pedestrian facilities around the world.
Yesterday Todd sent me a few photos he snapped during a trip with Commissioner Sam Adams and PDOT staff to The Netherlands back in 2006.
