The purpose of the Green Lane Project, is to send politicians, business leaders, engineers, planners and community advocates to some of the Northern European cities where biking is a normal, desirable part of everyday life. The participants will meet the professionals and civic leaders who’ve led these cities to become some of the best within the field of cycling.

“Anyone who’s interested in building a great city for the people in their city needs to come on this trip,” said Tami Door, CEO of the Downtown Denver Partnership and a participant in the 2014 delegation to Denmark. “They need to experience what they’re reading about and hearing about. They need to get out and ride the bikes and talk to the people that are really making it happen.”

Bill Peduto, the mayor of Pittsburgh who also joined a Danish study tour in 2014 was equally excited:

“You get out of the weeds. You’re able to rise above it and to think big thoughts. You think about 10 years from now, and what do you want your city to look like 25 years from now. You see it from a micro level; you see it from a macro level. The only way you actually get to see it is to be here.”
