Hello, I'm Tanner Passmore, but I go by Reid (my middle name). I'm a rising third year from Bentonville Arkansas, home of Walmart. Bentonville is a small rural town in Northwest Arkansas (NWA). 20 years ago, it didn't even have an interstate passing through it. Three years ago we got our first Chipotle. Now it is the home of numerous IMBA rated mountain biking trails and the 36-mile Razorback Regional Greenway. Despite a good number of trails, cycling is still thought of as a recreational activity rather than a legitimate mode of transportation. Cars pretty much rule the road.
I've traveled to and cycled in Iceland, Lyon, and most recently Toronto. I've learned from
The first thing I check when I visit a city is how to get around. I don't often travel by car, so the my first impression of a city usually involves its public transportation. As such, I learn about different alternatives of transportation. Moreover, I learn about what infrastructure works for different types of cities.
When we visit the Netherlands, I want to figure out the steps needed for a city like Atlanta to adopt Dutch bike infrastructure. Although, as good as its bike infrastructure is, the Netherland's solution may not be feasible for Atlanta. If so, I want to figure out what adjustments need to be made.
