The Institute for Bicycle and Pedestrian Innovation at Portland State University will host a week-long course on bicycle and pedestrian facility design and planning this summer.

Here’s the blurb:

“This week-long course will provide practitioners with the fundamentals of pedestrian and bicycle planning and design through an intensive week of classroom, field, and project experience. In addition, the course will integrate intersection design, transit access and connections, bridges, trail crossings, and other special features into the discussion…

Daily field tours (on foot and bike) will explore Portland’s “living laboratory” of bicycle and pedestrian facilities to provide first-hand experience of design and operations of facilities and projects discussed in the classroom. Week-long bike rentals are available for an additional fee. Please request the bike rental when registering for the workshop.”

More info on the course can be found on the IBPI’s website.
