With more than 140 km of dedicated bicycle paths, the municipality of Fredericia has a well-established tradition for planning with cyclists in mind. We acknowledge the numerous beneficial side effects associated with cycling and strive to set new and improved standards for cycle traffic. Consequently, Fredericia has now launched a large-scale initiative called Fredericia Cycle City, based on four projects aimed at increasing the number of cyclists, distances travelled by bicycles, and creating a safer and better environment for cyclists.
The municipality of Fredericia offers meetings with and presentations by Troels Andersen, project manager for Fredericia Cycle City and a civil engineer specializing in traffic planning. He has more than 20 years of experience with cycle projects in Odense, Aarhus, Copenhagen, and abroad. Troels offers a broad introduction to the cycle city concept and the how-to of establishing a cycle city – usefully illustrated with the example of Fredericia. Fredericia Cycle City consists of four key elements; six bike paths, bike parking, and fruitful cooperation with schools and private companies. The cycle city project could, along with other current projects and campaigns, be the theme for a visit to Fredericia. Furthermore, Troels is a safe choice for a speaker at meetings, conferences, and the like.
