City leaders and key bike advocates are headed to Amsterdam next week. The trip was Sam Adams’ idea and the goal will be to learn how Amsterdam’s government officials and planners have been so successful at creating thriving urban cities that encourage people to get out of their cars. Jessica Roberts of the BTA hopes the trip will be, “an inspiration, and that it will expand our sense of the possible. Portland is the perfect place to bring some of the techniques successfully used in Europe.”

Here’s a partial list of who will represent us:

I think that’s a list that we can all be proud of! I’ll be working with Jessica to bring you updates and photos of the trip. Stay tuned.
