Want to learn more about bike infrastructure?

515Bubbling up out of the Bike Union Organizing Group’s brainstorms about how to build skills among the city’s bike advocates, Northeastern University is set to offer a workshop on Bicycling Infrastructure Planning and Design to all.

The class will be taught by engineering faculty members Peter Furth, a member of the Organizing Group and contributing author of City Cycling and of NACTO’s Urban Bikeway Design Guide, and Daniel Dulaski PE, former consulting engineer and Town Engineer for Amherst, Mass.

For those who didn’t catch it live at BU’s Agannis Arena, Prof. Furth now has a TED Talk, and we’re anxiously awaiting the online version. He is one of Boston’s most tireless bike advocates, and a member of the Bike Union’s board and Organizing Group.

Furth and Dulaski’s one-day workshop, aimed at planners, designers, and advocates, will be offered on two dates, giving people a chance to choose the date that suits them best:

Bicycling Infrastructure Planning and Design Workshop
Sat., Mar. 1 or Mon Mar. 3
Northeastern University
West Village G Building, room 104 (Campus Map)
8:30am to 3pm
