Ten years ago, Odense took the lead in pioneer work as the Danish National Cyclist City; today, cycling is the strongest landmark of Odense. Now, cyclists in Odense benefit from 500 km of cycling lanes, tire pumps, cycle-counters, indoor and secured parking spaces, and many street intersections with first priority for cyclists. Apart from continuously improving cycling facilities, our focus is aimed on campaigns with a motivating effect and we want to reach out to as many target groups as possible.
The vision for future initiatives is to keep Odense a first-rate city for cyclists – because Odense makes cycling easier, safer, and more comfortable. Because of its knowledge in the field of cycling, Odense has been chosen to participate in the Urban Best Practice Area at EXPO Shanghai 2010.
