The 2010 Bike Futures conference is a once a year opportunity for national and local leaders, planners, designers and builders to come together around the opportunities and challenges we all face in meeting the ever rising demand for bicycle transportation. The 2010 Conference will tackle issues specific to bike transportation such as:
• Separating riders from traffic and tuning traffic signals
• Designing effective shared paths and developing shared use
• Applying the new AustRoads guidelines
• Links to workplaces and public transport and end of trip facilities
• Bikes plans, land use and high return investments
The Conference will bring you up to date with the latest and best solutions. The practical presentations will enable you to unlock the solutions to the problems you face and take advantage of the many benefits that bike riding brings to your community. If you feel that you are struggling on your own with bike issues the conference will put you in the network. Participants last year said things like ‘From a professional perspective it puts us in touch with a whole lot of people who we would normally not meet’. Bike Futures is a Bicycle Network project that supports people who are working in, with or alongside Local Government in Australasia.
Etihad Stadium, Melbourne: Thursday 14th – Friday 15th October 2010
The Call for Papers is open until August 31st.
