Bicycle Capitals of the world: Sustainable mobility in Copenhagen and Amsterdam

KpVV (Transport Knowledge Resource Center in the Netherlands) and Fietsberaad (Center of expertise on bicycle policy in the Netherlands) invite you to join us and two program managers of the bicycle capitals of the World in the discussion about bicycle policy.
Article and event from KpVV Webcast

The city of Copenhagen is working on a new program on cycling policy. The goal is to increase the percentage of cycling commuters from 37% to a 50% market share by 2015. To reach this goal Copenhagen wants to make cycling travel times more competitive and create a more pleasant cycling environment during rush hour.
Amsterdam is a comparable city with much similarities on spatial planning and culture. Both cities have a comparable bicycle use. But there are some remarkable differences as well. For example in Copenhagen cyclists wear helms, stop for a red light and in rush hours almost no children are cycling to school.

What did they learn from their policy last years, concerning parking problems, theft , infrastructure, safety and promotion of bicycle use? How did they differ and what are the lessons learned? What are the challenges they face? These are some of the questions asked during the webcast.
