Accommodations

The host hotel for the colloquium is the Courtyard Marriott Downtown Orlando.
There are a few other downtown hotels within walking distance.  Unless you are the “adventurous” type we would not recommend the Travelodge.  We also suggest you avoid motels along West Colonial Drive (SR 50) (except the Crowne Plaza) and along South Orange Blossom Trail (US 441).

Meals
There are a few restaurants within a 15-minute walk of the Courtyard Marriott; many more within biking distance.  We will give you a longer lunch break both to reach some of these locations and to give more socializing time.

Bike Rentals
Kyle’s Bike Shop

  1. I’m looking forward to attending this potentially groundbreaking conference and traveling in company with Karen Karabell, who operates CyclingSavvy – St. Louis.

  2. I just registered. How should I pay?

  3. I’d be interested in discussing outreach to driver’s education classes. Maybe something some of us can discuss during meals or breaks?

  4. I just registered. Can I pay via check or credit card when I arrive? I didn’t see opportunity to use paypal here…
