Presentation:

As momentum in Richmond grows for the UCI Cycling World Championships, Chris Kiefer and Andy Boenau of Timmons Group will be discussing several topics related to bicycling:

  • “Bicycle Urbanism”: Designing for people vs. engineering for cars. What civil engineers need to know to remain relevant in a changing field.
  • The future of bicycle urbanism and bicycle friendly streets in the Richmond region.
  • Updates on two major bicycling projects in the Richmond area: the Floyd Ave Bike/Walk Street and the Virginia Capital Trail
