Consulate General Netherlands Recognizes PEDal

The Consulate General of the Netherlands recognized the Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan for San Clemente authored by Brenda Miller. Here is an excerpt from their letter.

Dear  Brenda,
We enjoyed very much reading about your work with PEDal on a Bicycle and  Pedestrian Master Plan for San Clemente and hope that you had a successful presentation to the Planning Commission this week.            
For your information, the Dutch Cycling Embassy in partnership with the Netherlands Embassy in DC, has been active in supporting the US cities in the development of better biking facilities through a series of ThinkBike Workshops. These 2-Day workshops match Dutch cycling experts with city planners, engineers and advocates, who work together to develop solutions to key problem areas. The workshops have been held in Chicago, DC, Miami, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Pittsburgh and Philidelphia. Next month ThinkBike comes to San Jose and Austin, and there are plans for a workshop in San Diego and Atlanta in Spring 2013. 

To learn more about the workshops, see our website (documentation of past ThinkBike projects or our ThinkBike page on Facebook (photos and links to press from our most recent projects).

We would love to hear more about your work in San Clemente and would be very happy if you could join us for the next workshop in San Jose next month or in San Diego next year.
All the best,            
Jennifer Katell
Senior Public Diplomacy, Press & Culture Officer
