This type of session is extremely helpful and I learned a lot about things that will affect planners in Texas, even if those are outside of the type of planning I do. One of the speakers was crude and unprofessional, which was disappointing, especially for his prominence in the Texas planning community.

This was a good high level discussion of how smaller cities were able to incorporate various bike facilities into their existing network. Particularly interesting to see that there are methods that do not require full street rebuilds and multi-million dollar projects for just a few roads. Some of the example cities have done well with efficient use of funding to gain a large amount of bike miles.
