That’s right, we’re headed oversees.
Your correspondent is headed to Prague at the end of the month to join the Portland Streetcar delegation going to inspect the next three cars now under construction in the Czech Republic.
The next stop on the trip is Amsterdam, where I’ll join Commissioner Sam Adams, PDOT’s bicycle coordinator and a crew from the Bicycle Transportation Alliance (some of whom are also Portland Transport contributors) to help understand what makes Amsterdam one of the great biking cities of the world. We’ll be bringing back ideas to help get Portland to Platinum status.
Readers can look forward to a steady stream of blog posts and photos during the trip!
We’re also accepting suggestions for what we should be looking out for. Let us know your thoughts.
We’ll be using Flckr to host our trip photos. Here is our first attempt at integrating it into a Portland Transport post. Thanks to Todd Boulanger (the venerable bike advocate from Vancouver USA) for providing us with some Amsterdam preview photos.
