Text from making cities for people … by Gehl Architects

“We have known about it for years, but now The Danish Federation of Cyclist together with Megafon have delivered the proof: Cyclists are the happiest people in traffic. The amount of happiness, that cyclists associate with their mode of transportation by far surpasses that of both bus passengers, train passengers and car drivers.

As for anger, cyclists have the lowest feeling of anger associated with their mode of transportation, again compared to that of people choosing bus, train or private car for their transportation.

This result underlines the multiple positive benefits of cycling, that has to do with both health, sustainability, safety, livability and happiness. All that through promoting cycling and making it more attractive for more people to chose the cycle as their mode of transportation in the city.
