Revised Question, Getting Closer…

Once again, our group has a new question that is quite different from the last revision. Our new question is: Using Seattle as a reference point, what are the conditions in Amsterdam that make its bicycling infrastructure successful or unsuccessful? With help from our professors, we decided that this question most accurately describes what we really wanted to study in the city of Amsterdam. Our last question was missing a key essential ingredient for a good question—relevance. This new question, unlike the previous one, has relevance. It focuses on what Amsterdam has that Seattle doesn’t in regards to the bicycling infrastructure. It is important because Seattle is pushing for a more prevalent bicycling culture and by studying how Amsterdam has become so successful in developing their bicycling community, it may shed light into ways on how Seattle can achieve their goal.
