 It is the first time that the conference has been held in the U.S. and appropriately enough, it’s coming to the nation’s premier cycling city.

The conference attendees include experts in urban planning, mechanical and civil engineering, data science, sociology and behavior….

ADoNA comment, from Eddie Wren

Whilst I have never instructed in Davis, another university city I have worked in where there were huge numbers of students commuting on bicycles is Burlington, Indiana.  It is a fact that many people who drive in different states get quite a shock when confronted by dozens or even hundreds of people on bicycles, and clearly it is incumbent on all drivers to be adequately knowledgeable and courteous, so as to always be able to deal with any number of cyclists safely.

Naturally, that courtesy and safety needs to be a two-way transaction.
