The International Bicycle Urbanism Symposium will bring together practitioners, academics, policy makers and advocates with diverse backgrounds including urban design, planning, transportation, engineering, landscape architecture, and public policy.

Over two days, participants will explore the way that cities can best encourage and accommodate bicycle travel in the future. Speakers from around the globe will lead sessions on topics including: imagining the 20-30 year future of bicycle-friendly cities, integrating bicycling into urban planning and design, effects of bike use on health and environment, policies for developing bicycle infrastructure and programs, best practices in bicycle facility design and implementation, advances in bicycle and gear technology and economic contributions, and implementing bicycle policies and plans-education, registration, finance, political, and public acceptance.

The keynote address will be given by noted bicycle researcher John Pucher. In addition to the sessions at the University of Washington, participants will have the option of taking field trips (on bike-of course!) to see and explore Seattle's bike infrastructure.

Road Holland Photo Contest

Author: OneEyeGoat Posted: 2012-03-21

Here at S&S, we're suckers for a good bicycle-oriented photos. Maybe it's the graceful form of the bike itself. Or the beauty and interesting environs that always seem to go hand in hand with a ride.

Whatever, the reason, we want to reward those avid photographers out there for their efforts. Send us a great "bike shot" by April 15, 2012 and we'll send you a $20 gift certificate for use on our sister site, Road Holland.  Send your photo(s) to us at SeriousandStylish@roadholland.com

And we'll also enter you in our photo contest for a chance to win a free jersey. Our esteemed panel of judges (me, Richard, and couple other friends with good eyes) will then pick the top ones. Our readers will then vote for the best one ??? the responsible lucky photographer gets a free jersey.
